Love me some Lobsters, NOM, NOM, NOM

I cook mine on the grill in a foil steamer. Not many things better than a Cajun Crawfish boil unless it's Mariland Crabcakes...Oooo don't forget Langostino Fra Diavolo!!!

If I was only allowed one type of food the rest of my life it would be Sushi

Had to look that up to see what it is, and nope! Any raw meats are out. I actually was going to try sushi once, but the fellow ahead of me tried one bite and ended up vomiting on the spot so I took that as a sign.

Being from the Bay Area, I can't get enough seafood.. Put anything that was once alive on my plate and I'll go to town on it.

ESPECIALLY lobster. Maybe it was the way in which it was cooked or prepared?

Sometimes when I see a huge pleco at my lfs, I just want to throw it on the grill and eat that sucker.

Fish on the hibachi? Nothing beats Mahi Mahi.

With Roasted Mango Habanero Salsa, I found this recipe and it was fantastic. http://www.yummly.com/recipe/Roasted...osition=4%2F39

I did go a bit harder on the habaneros than the recipe called for.

Hope everyone got their lobster fix because this summer they were as going as low as $2/lb in some places in Maine. Most supermarkets were selling lobsters for @ $4-$5/lb. Absolutely insane.

OP probably didn't like the texture of his crustacean. The first time I tried a piece of lobster I was probably in kindergarten & it was probably dipped in a bowl of freshly melted butter, so hard not to refuse that.

Lub..... how many people did that seafood boil feed? I could tell it's NOT a single serving by the amount of corn on the tray.

Common misconception about sushi. Sushi is the rice. Although Sushi is usually made with raw meat it can also be a cooked meat. Sashimi on the other hand is ALWAYS raw meat.


Sushi (すし, 寿司, 鮨, 鮓, 寿斗, 寿し, 壽司?) is a Japanese food consisting of cooked vinegared rice (鮨飯 sushi-meshi?) combined with other ingredients (ネタ neta?), usually raw fish or other seafood. Ingredients and forms of sushi presentation vary widely, but the ingredient which all sushi have in common is vinegared rice. The vinegared rice is also referred to as shari (しゃり?) and sumeshi (酢飯?). Raw meat (usually but not necessarily seafood) sliced and served by itself is sashimi. Many non-Japanese use the terms sashimi and sushi interchangeably, but they are not synonymous. Sushi refers to any dish made with vinegared rice.

When I was a teen my father had NY shell fish permits. We ate lobster at least 3x a week in the summer fresh caught by us diving. Use to have clams on the half shell that couldn't be any fresher (and sandier). I use to love lobster in tomato gravy over a nice thin spaghetti. We went to Cape Cod on vacation a few years ago and had to have lobster. It had been years. Still can't figure out what I loved about lobster. Still love clams on the half shell though.

My favorite seafood is surely squid. Fried, over pasta, sauteed with onions and garlic. I don't care so long as it's not overcooked. Which is real easy to do.


Dogfish, if your putting it into foil may as well just do it on the stove top. So happens today i was watching the cooking channel and on Bobby Flay's Barbecue Addiction he was doing a grilled lobster roll. He said to fully cook the lobster by steaming then cut the tail in half. Put a bit of canola oil on it and grill it flesh side down.

Steaming and grilling kill too much of the flavor. Raw is the only way to go. BBQ sauce is only if you don't like the flavor. Touch of tarragon infused butter drizzled gingerly over the raw bug is all you need for a great tasting snack. A nice Australian Pinot Grigio would be a good pairing.

I'm a sucker for sushi. I tend to gorge myself on the stuff and spend WAY too much. But its SOOO good. And I feel really good after eating it. My fav is some octopus as long as its prepared correctly.

That was for me, the wife and 3 kids. We over shot the amount to buy by about 1/2lb of crawfish a couple potatoes and an ear of corn. It sucks you can't keep shellfish for leftovers.

I love seafood. I'm the daughter of a New England fisherman... I think it's required.

Clam chowder.. Lobstah, crab, stuffed quohoag, salmon, swordfish, various whitefishes, squid and shrimp... The foods I grew up with.. I don't care if they're evolutionarily related to bugs. Bugs are nutritious, numerous and economical to farm.


I can't believe you didn't like it. Do you like/eat crab?

Lobster is one of my favorite foods. Drew, if you ever want to try again, go to shaws during their specials ($5 for a 1lb lobster) and ask them to prepare it for you. They'll steam it for you and you go home with a fresh lobster without hassle other than opening it.

If lobster is still gross and you want to experiment further try crab, or crayfish, or langoustino (no idea what these are called in English) or shrimp (I'm assuming the latter you've already tried)

Good luck!
