Should Lobster Be Cooked Alive?

Lobster should definitely be boiled alive because of the fact that the bacteria will enter into the meat very quickly and as a direct result of that it will go bad. Those who want to avoid getting food poisoning will always want to boil their lobster alive as it is the safest way to do so.

You should also remember to never eat a cooked lobster with a curled tail as this is a sign that it died before being cooked. There are also certain digestive enzymes in their stomach which start to digest the internal organs after they die unless they are completely eviscerated during the cooking process.
