What to expect when you purchase a Lobster
Delicious White Meat - this can be found in the tail and claws of the Lobster
Tomalley - this is the soft green, red or black substance which is found in the body cavity of Lobsters that fulfills the function of both the liver and pancreas.
It is perfectly safe to eat and is often considered a delicacy. It may be eaten alone or used in sauces for flavour and as a natural thickening agent.
