Default Surf and Turf Project

One of the guys I work with bought a big box of steaks... 8 steaks to the box. Filets.

Another guy I work with had spent a week diving for lobsters. His share was about 50 pounds. He gave me 5.

I see a "Surf and Turf" in my future. I had two of the steaks already, in a soy marinaid and splitt in half laterally. AWSOMEEEEEE! I want to make the steaks again this way.

Anybody got an idea for the Lobsters?

I like lobster over pasta. Make sure to enjoy a nice Rye Manhattan to start things off! I will be with you in spirit (pun intended).

Bring a pot of water to a boil and season it with Zatarain's crab boil. Put the Lobsters in whole just long enough for them to turn red then remove them. Take a french knife and split them lengthwise then brush with butter and put them on the grill for a few minutes to finish them. Don't over cook them or they'll be tough.

got the steaks.... got 4 lobsters.... WOW! there are only 3 of us for 6 steaks and 4 lobsters. I had planned to quit eating all animal protein within 24 hours as part of an cleansing type of thing. I am not wierd - I am just allergic to so many things that I thought I wouls stop everything for a month...

I just put a pound of black beans on to soak along with a bunch of rice in the cooker.

That was a lot of lobster! I had so much steak leftover, I fed the cat and froze the rest for sandwiches!

I'm jealous. How did you end up preparing it?

I grilled the steaks after cutting them in half (too thick). Salt, fresh cracked pepper, and a little garlic.

The lobsters - my Wife insisted - were boiled for 10 minutes, gutted, chooped, and seved on a bed of egg noodles. Very decadent!

That's the way to do it - preferrably with some browned butter and lemon. I prefer linguine, though.

My whole family goes silly at the thought of noodles with salt, butter, and freshly cracked pepper. It's a meal in it's self.

Last lobster post.

The "next to last" of the lobster went into past, butter, salt and pepper - I knew it would. The last bit of lobster went into a modified crab cake recipe.

minced lobster meat
bread crumbs
1 egg
butter,
bunch of seasoning.

Make a dall of mixture. Divide into two parts. Pand fry in butter till done.

I needed to add more salt on the second batch. It was between a crab cake, which is very thick, and a pancake type of thing. Tastes reag good though.
