    Default Latest Lobster Session

    This one was at Jake's on Nantasket Beach, MA. Deep-fried lobster chunks,
    real chunks, were new to me and absolutely delicious. They seemed an odd
    idea but then I thought "What the hell, they fry all the other seafood,
    don't they?" and took Senior Daughter's advice.

    I warmed up for the main event with a pair of gin-and-tonics and a
    half-dozen Pemaquid oysters, and when we got back to SD's house my bedtime
    snack was chocolate malted ice cream.

    Overnights with the folks in Rhymes-with-Gingham are such fun.

    Sounds good.

    Could you tell which lobster pieces-parts took better to deep frying,
    i.e. claw or tail meat?

    Something tells me tail would do better but I'd like your
    opinion.

    Good question, but I couldn't discern any difference in taste or texture,
    and they were all about the same size. They were very lightly breaded, I
    believe in Panko. Whatever part of the bug they came from, they were
    goo-oo-ood.

    We'll have to get you down to RI to try some of Aunt Carrie's
    seafood. Maybe invite SD to join us.

    Thanks. I've been wanting to try it for years. I think I
    will.

    If I were to do it, I'd probably slice cross sections of tail, about
    2/3" thick. And then maybe cut those in half at the seam. for the
    wider pieces.

    That sounds about right. I'd save the claw meat for another use.

    Hey Felice was up at the co -op
    yesterday and today vought FROZEN lobster (unuslaul for me but they
    have downsized the catch area and next year might be HUGE increase on
    beach price)

    Grabbed 50KG of Lobster Tails

    Usually I cook my own and NEVER frozen)

    Any suggestions .

    Normally all I do is steam and add mild sauce type recipes
    and never having had to deal with frozen before a bit of a learner .

    Suggestions most welcome .

    Tonight is just

    1 thaw
    2 steam (with ginger in steam water )

    Then whip up some mashed potato

    warm the shells

    put in steamed lobster meat sprinkle with warmed over butter lemon juice
    and white wine

    Dob mashed potato on top with some edam cheese salt pepper
    under the griller until cheese melts
    Then serve

    No idea how it comes out as doing this as I type


    Presentation = no problem

    Taste yet to be tested

    But I dont like keeping Lobster in freezers longer for very long

    Look forward to your ideas

    As next year they will probably TRIPLE in price

    for live crays

    I've never steamed Australian lobster tail, I loosen it in the shell
    and broil it. Other than that, what's not to like about your menu?

    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.
