Lobster

Just had my fish delivery for the weekend. I have bought 2 live lobster off the back of the van because the wholesaler doesn't want them knocking about in the store over the weekend. Two for 10.00. Good size too.

Have chucked them in the freezer for an hour to calm them down. They are a little frisky at the moment and their eyes are bobbing about like a speed freak at a disco. Will do the business on them later.

What to do with them?.....Thinkies.

Two for a tenner is a great price. Grilled with garlic butter is my favourite. I don't think doing anything too fancy with them is called for.

Yes you put them in the freezer for a couple of hours to sedate them before 'dispatching'.

Are they alive?

In the freezer??


Yes. It puts them to sleep before slicing the head from the back down and between the eyes.

Yes a delicate flavour and as much about the texture. Grilled and eaten with home made garlic mayo, baby new pots and salad is probably the way I will go. Perhaps a grate of parmesan to top.

I will use the shells to make a stock and get a bisque out of the and the claw meat.

They've got rubber bands round their claws. Viscious little buggers.

lobster tikka masala sounds good to me

Langoustines are the equal of lobster I think. An al fresco plate of them with lemon, aoli, tabasco and a nice crisp salad is as good as i gets (plus finger bowl of course).

The guy with the van sounds like a selfish chap

Langoustine and wild asparagus risotto is one of my favourite holiday lunches. Fresh langoustine of course, and consumed looking out over the Adriatic.

The deed is done. Not a wimper as they were fast asleep from the cold. Can't wait for dinner (me, not the lobsters).

 I thought he was a racist lunatic at first when he told me he had a van full of crushed asians.

At Kendells restaurant in Leeds last night I had a starter of scallops on cauliflower mash with a shard of crispy bacon and samphire. Gorgeous it was.

Sounds lovely (he says munching through 2 bacon sarnies a 1/2 pint of tea).

The main course of belly pork, dauphinoise potatoes and roast beetroot was equally as good as was the chocolate tart at the end.

Mmmmm scallops!

Mmmmm lobster

Mmmmm langoustine

Well that was a tenner well spent. We had lobster with home mayo and salad. Then made a bisque and had that for lunch with warm rolls and just polished it off with mayo and brown bread....Loverly.
