Lobster. That's what I'm thinking.

As a Newfoundlander by birth, lobster is like Mother's milk to me. I haven't had the "real" stuff since last year. I WANT LOBSTER! And I want it NOW! But I think I will need to wait till the weekend to visit my dealer (ha!) and get about 10 live ones. Mmmmm....I'm salivating thinking of it, with hot garlic lemon butter and warm steamed asparagus.

Growing up on Long Island, I actually overdosed on lobster. One summer (because we had a friend working on a lobster boat)we had it every day. It got to the point I'd walk in the door, open the fridge and whine, "Lobster again?"

Growing up landlocked in the Midwest, I can assure you this was never an issue, although we did complain about having steak and corn on the cob too often in the summer.

DS and DS's father just came home from Maine... where they ordered and had FedEx'd home 18 lobsters...

We get six of them - tomorrow.

Yes, they're not live, but it's better than no lobster at all.

Lobster from Florida is way different than Lobster from Maine.

I don't even think I'll make anything to go with the Lobster.

NIK - I grew up land locked in Michigan... lots of steak and corn on the cob there too.

I'm from Arizona. The best I can hope for is a small, half starved crayfish.

Come on, h0peless; if you're willing to pay, you can get lobster in AZ. It was DS's birthday dinner every year when we lived there

There are benefits to living on either coast...when I lived on the East Coast of Canada I enjoyed fresh scallops (right off the boats), and lobster (even in the Chinese food, huge hunks of fresh lobster), and fresh fish....
When I lived on the West Coast of Canada I enjoyed fresh Pacific Salmon, crab and fresh fish......
SO and I went out for supper the other night and I had a feed of crab's legs, plunged into hot, garlic/lemon was so good!!!
Nothing compares to enjoying the fresh seafood that I am lucky to have available to me living where I do now....whatever the price....

Yeah but I'm talking fresh. Like the kind I get when I visit my sister in Boston. Crayfish is too risky anyways. I tried to catch one once and it pinched my finger.

I am planning my lobster party today. Maybe I'll do a traditional Newfie potato salad to go with it as well. Oh, the possibilities! There will be enough lobster for leftovers the next day. Yum, yum, yum.

Sad, my ex-husband once ate so much lobster, he got completely turned against it! It was years before he could look a lobster in the eye again.

I definitely vote Lobster!!

I'm thinking Saturday night if you want to show up!

So while we're on the subject, I want to try to have a lobster bake on my deck this summer. Maybe about fifteen people. What do I serve and how do I prepare the lobster? Do I have other seafood dishes as well? Help. I don't want to look like a jackass.

lynnm1947 posted 6/26/2013 13:02 PM

I've never baked lobsters. We have lobster boils. Take a huge pot and fill it with highly salted (preferably sea) water. (My pot holds 3-4 lobsters, depending on size. Bring to a rollicking boil. Hold lobster firmly between the tail and the back. slightly squeezing the tail so it can't flap. Plunge lobster head down into the boiling water and hold until any movement stops. Drop lobster in the water. Repeat with more lobsters. Bring water back to the boil and cook 12-15 minutes for 1 lb lobster, 15-20 minutes for a 1 1/2 pound lobster, 20-25 minutes for a 2-3 pound lobster. Perfect lobster every time and no "screaming".
Count on one lobster per person. You can skimp and do 1/2 per person, but if they are lobby lovers, they'll each need their own. Serve with loads of melted butter, seasoned with garlic and lemon.

Steaming is the best!!

One never gets enough lobster.
I just wish I could afford even a small 1-1/4 pounder but at $9 a pound, it's outa my reach.

lynnm1947 posted 6/26/2013 14:01 PM

suckstobebe, if you have enough lobster, you need nothing else except a side dish or two and the butter!

TrulyReconciled posted 6/26/2013 14:13 PM

... and a glass of Chassagne Montrachet

MMMM Lobster.
When my daughter was about 3, I parked her in the grocery cart near the lobster tank and turned to grab something.

When I turned around she was crying and saying, "Mommy I can't like this bug!"

Poor little bunny.
