Cooking with the Mermaid Inn: Lobster Knuckle Escargot
“You just twist here, pull there, and crack it open,” says Michael Cressotti, executive chef at Manhattan seafood spot The Mermaid Inn, tossing the limp shell of a butchered lobster aside. He slides one blade of a kitchen shear into the joint between the claw and leg and slices the hard shell open, exposing the pearlescent meat within. “See, this is the knuckle,” he explains. “Simple.”
TRIGGER WARNING!!! ANIMAL ABUSE, MURDER, CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY AHEAD
Why the fuck would you put this on the Tumblr radar? Don’t you know meat is murder? Looking at this is depressing me. How could you do this to an innocent lobster? With the arms torn off of it… I’m shedding tears over this. How could anyone do this?
Fuck you if you aren’t vegan.
