Oh, they can be cooked in the shell, but taken out of the shell before they appear on my plate. LOL

I just don't like the looks of them. We go to a seafood buffet occasionally, and I will admit I have eaten them there, and took them out of the shells myself, but I would prefer not to. I also eat crablegs and most of the time my husband cracks them open for me. And, if I order lobster in a restaurant, I want it to be presented already out of the shell.

Hello, Harry. Long time no see.

Thought I'd contribute and help resurrect this thread. I LOVE to see member food photos!

Speaking of shellfish....I grilled some beautiful prawns recently. Marinated in a little olive oil, chopped garlic, lemon juice, and cracked black pepper.

I am with you Carol. When I order food in a restaurant I want it to arrive at my table ready to eat. I will gladly pay for my meal. I just don't want to have to work for my meal as well. And if you are going to be serving me jumbo shrimp, please remover the shell on the tail. When they are big enough that I have to cut them into pieces to eat, I don't want to be picking out pieces of shell after I have put it in my mouth.

I no longer order lobsters in a restaurant. Again, I don't want to have to work my arthritic fingers into a mass of pain just to get at my food. AT home, I get my kitchen shears and just cut the shell right up the middle. And if you know how to twist off the claws right, the meat just falls out. If it doesn't, I grab my shears again.

That's why I like meatloaf. No work involved. Fork to mouth, over and over, again and again.
