Preparing Lobster Tails

Written by Lee Dobbins

Lobster, oncerepparttar food of poor farmers, is now considered a special treat for many. Although some people preferrepparttar 113072 meaty claws, I think that lobster tails arerepparttar 113073 best tasting part of this delicious creature. A great meal of lobster tails might seem like a gourmet feast to your guests, but they are actually quite easy to prepare. Add a little sprig of garnish and a fancy side dish and you’re sure to impress even your mother in law.

Your lobster tails might start off a fresh or frozen, being in New England, fresh lobster is easy to come by but frozen might be all you can get in some parts ofrepparttar 113074 country and inrepparttar 113075 off season. If your lobster tails are frozen, you need to thaw them out (you can cook them frozen but they will not be as tender). Put them inrepparttar 113076 fridge for 10 hours or so or thaw them inrepparttar 113077 microwave on defrost – be very careful if you choose this method as you don’t want them to start cooking inrepparttar 113078 microwave. After they are thawed, removerepparttar 113079 meat fromrepparttar 113080 shell by cutting openrepparttar 113081 back ofrepparttar 113082 shell – split it downrepparttar 113083 middle and open it up to revealrepparttar 113084 meat.

Insects for Dinner? <>

<>No-no, notrepparttar 113071 squashed fly betweenrepparttar 113072 pages of your plastic menu orrepparttar 113073 little roach that scrambles out from under your plate in a restaurant, butrepparttar 113074 one that gets delivered in your dinner on purpose.

Considerrepparttar 113075 possibilities...

<> Arthropods, or organisms with jointed legs are clearly related to lobsters, crabs and other edible beings inrepparttar 113076 ocean. It's been determined that lobsters are actually sea-going cockroaches and in addition, lobster exoskeletons also haverepparttar 113077 same jointed legs and antennae as grasshoppers.

In comparison, grasshoppers should be more desirable than lobsters. Grasshoppers eat clean grass; lobsters eat sea garbage like dead fish and other remains onrepparttar 113078 murky ocean floor.

Of course we all eat some insects unknowingly. Aphids cling to lettuce leaves, and weevils and beetles can reside in flour and rice undetected. The FDA actually has a measurement of ‘acceptable’ insect presence in food.
