I just cooked live lobster for the first time this morning-butter poached tail and claws. I saved the heads in the fridge (which are split now) in ziplock bag bc I thought I could use it for stock for bisque. Is it still safe to cook? It's been dead for at least 8 hrs and the lobster legs are still attached. Do I have to remove the insides too?
