    Jim Davis: Chef Jim Davis here for Harris Teeter. I'm going to show you now how to remove boiled lobster meat from the tail.

    Take a pair of heavy scissors, kitchen shears. Starting at the top of the tail, just get right under the shell, and just snip it right down. All the way down. Pull the little feathery tails apart, and remove the meat.

    And there is a beautiful lobster tail ready to cut for service.

    Up next how to remove the meat from the claw and the legs.
