Happy Anniversary!

Keep it simple. Steam or boil them. No need to do anything else. Clarified butter is a usual item to serve for dipping, but I much prefer regular melted butter, not clarified.

Thanks so much for the nice wishes everyone!!

The lobsters turned out great... steamed them in a big pot for 25 minutes. We ate the tails with drawn butter, along with steamed jasmine rice and Haricot Vert with bacon and onion.
We have enough meat left from the bodies and claws to make two Lobster Rolls for lunch tomorrow. I wish we could buy those special rolls here, but we'll have to make do with hot dog buns.

Dang, Kayelle. Lobster and astroturf would be good! Hot dog buns will be great! Are you going to smear the buns with lots of butter and toast them? Please say yes! (living vicariously).

The legs might not seem like the effort of working with, but if you detach all those lil guys from the body, and roll with a rolling pin)or a bottle of wine, just something that rolls)from the "toes" up, all the meat will come right on out the top. It adds up quick, and is just another way to get more bang for the buck.


****ALSO**** Pepridge farm makes a split top, "New England" style hot dog roll, available in most regular grocery stores. Not hard to find.

happy anniversary, k-l and mr. l.
did you get any roe? did you eat the tomalley? i often save the roe and the leglet meat to make mashed potatoes, and when i can i use the water the lobsters were boiled in to boil the potatoes. i'm not a big fan of the tomalley, though.

there is no comparison to real maine lobster. it's something about the water.
i totally agree with gb. the only way to go is simply steamed or boiled, served with melted butter and some crusty bread for sopping up any liquor that spills out.

i never realized how common it is for people to mail order the little monsters. i just saw a lobster special on qvc that had 6 six ounce tails, and 2 lbs. of king crab legs for something like $275. that sounds crazy. we can get them for under $9/lb. all year long, $5 /lb. on sale seasonally.

Oh, just cut it out, BT. Jealous.

But can you get walleye? Huh? Huh?

actually, i can. my neighbor is a big fresh water fisherman. he heads out to the great lakes a few times a year for fish like salmon, walleye, and northern pike. he often brings us back fish in return for watching his house while he's gone.

i was listening to a business news radio program a while ago, and they mentioned that lobsters have gotten so plentiful that the price is being artificially supported so they don't lose their appeal as an expensive treat. i guess that's part of why they have become an affordable enough food to be able to ship for a profit.

I will offer to watch your neighbor's house for fish. Please set up the cameras.

Interesting about the lobsters, BT. Good to know.
