Gordon Ramsay Demonstrates How To Cook The Perfect Lobster | Season 7 Ep. 6 | MASTERCHEF

Please be careful,
because this one here is a super sharp fast claw. This one is to crush. Do not get your
fingers in there, OK. Now, you got to kill it quickly. We’ll do this as safe and
as humane as possible. There’s the cross line there. Across there, knife in, and
down through, and that is it. Straight into the water,
a touch of salt, and that is in there for two minutes. We’re not cooking it
all the way through. We’re just poaching
it to release the meat from the shell. So, I’m taking mental
notes in my head right now like I’m a student
in one of my classes. I’m memorizing
every step he does because I’m going to
de-shell this lobster exactly how Gordon’s doing it. Now snap off the claws. Get down to the knuckles
and twist and off. And then from there, straighten
out the tail and twist. So you’ve got all that
meat left in there. Open up the tail and then just
press the shell very gently. Don’t crush it. Now, once you’ve gone
2/3 of the way through, press here and shake, and
carefully pull out the tail. Now, claws snap off the
knuckles, twist and pull. You get that blade out there. OK, the blade comes out. And we want these claws intact. Just gently pries out that claw,
and then open up the knuckles. But some of you
stop at that point. There’s more meat in
here– the eight legs that the majority of the
population forget about. I am not going to let
these legs go to waste. You start from thin end. You place that down there, and
you literally push and roll. Wow. That’s awesome. What? Now, how do we present that? Let me show. You take your tail and
you just gently slice, and this helps it flatten out. That sits on your board. Your claws go on, and then
your knuckles, and then very carefully your legs. We’re not done. Take this beautiful head. Pull that off. Open it very carefully. And then you take
your scissors and I’m going to trim the shell. Now, that should
stand up usually. And then finally take a little
touch of extra virgin olive oil, just very carefully brush. That gives it a nice sheen. Wow. Oh, my God. That is how you extract
every ounce of lobster from your shell.
Got it? Wow. [applause]

  1. I wouldn't eat that! Imagine hes cooking you a steak and he gives you the cows head and legs on a plate, would you eat that and not feel sick!

  2. The majority don't eat the legs??? I do, there's even a little meat under the lobster's body. The legs are not worth wasting and I guess I am that minority that spends time eating them and not wasting one meaty bit.

  3. Gordon: I won't let any ounce of these go wasted…
    Contestants: How about it's Shell's
    Gordon: it's for presentation…

  4. ram:killing lobster
    other lobster: AWW MAN I WANT TO BE KILLED
    me: you know, I know everything in the world.
    one second later:
    there's nothing of this I know!

  5. I hate it when people say putting it in the water without killing it is inhumane The lobster dies instantly when it hits the water just imagine it like standing in front of a boiling swimming pool and doing a common all you will die the second you touch the water or pass out from the heat of the steam, it is just as humane as killing it before you just don't run the risk if ruining the meat.
