STEP 6: Using either your teeth or “crab crackers”, break the claw just above the pinchers and remove the shell. See the nice big clump of claw meat? Mmmmmmm.

STEP 7: Next, eat the meat right off the claw, like this. And then move on to claw no. 2

If you have trouble getting the claw shell to come off, and if the meat gets stuck inside, do not fear. Using the pinchers from another claw as a fork, dig into the claw and get the meat out. It still tastes just as good!
