The Tale of Two Lobsters

This weekend Glen and I celebrated his birthday.  His birthday isn’t until August 2nd, but we both have to work that day, (opposite shifts), so we celebrated early.  Yesterday we went and saw the new Batman movie and then afterwards we went to Hyvee and bought two live lobsters.  We had never cooked lobster before, but we were confidant that we could cook them up and they would be delicious……and they were!

I love lobster, but have to admit that all of their legs really freak me out.  So Glen had to handle them.  I stood way back and took the pictures :-p

Our plan was to grill the lobsters.  You have to parboil them first.  We used the biggest pan I own….it was just big enough. 

Image

Here they are after boiling for a couple of minutes….waiting to be split in half.

Again, Glen had to do all the messy work…..I could do it if it weren’t for all those damn legs.

Image

Then onto the grill they went.  Oh yeah, we also grilled 4 scallops.  Scallops = eye rolling, mouth watering yumminess.

Image

All done and ready to be devoured.  It was literally lip smacking good!

  2. We had left over mashed cauliflower and sauteed spinach with mushrooms. We made a lime chipotle dipping oil for the lobster. Have some of the oil left over and am planning on putting it on some fish for tomorrows dinner.
