    Had a nice lobster feed at my moms tonight. Here are some pics for those of you in the middle of the country with no access to fresh off the boat lobsters. We ate these within a couple hours of being caught. Soft shells and sweet as candy.


    Heating the water.


    Added a splash of olive oil and some roasted garlic sea salt to the water.


    16 pound to pound and a quarter lobsters


    Last dance.


    Everyone in the pool.


    Almost done. About 10-12 mins.


    All done.


    Scooping them out.


    Time to eat.


    A bowl of heaven.


    No survivors :)

    Thanks for looking.

    What a great and tasty spread. As they say in the Big Easy "  Laissez les bons temps rouler".

  10. Awesome.  Between BP's oil and crawfish season being over, I'm not getting my usual intake of seafood.  Great job!

     I'm not from the Big Easy, nor can I speak French, so for all you other Westerner's out there...  Rich just said "Pass me another one of those lobsters!"
    Hook - this post is off the hook!  Fine job!

    wow, that looks awesome. I been wanting to do a lobster boil for my whole life. If you don't mind we asking, how much would it cost to do that?

    lobsters are expensive here, to do that would be over $250 just for the lobsters

    Well it wasn't close to $250 for us :) We have a connection (several in fact) to some lobster boats and family members with personal licenses. These were $4 a piece (not a pound). We paid $56 dollars for 14 lobsters and because a couple only had one claw he threw in 2 extra. They were on the small side (1 to 1 1/4 lbs) but when they are small and cheap you just buy a few more. Prices in the store are around $5 to $8 dollars a pound depending on where you get them. (Bigger ones are more expensive)

    Were going to do this again in August when some family from California come for a visit. Probably will get around 25 next time. I'll post again so you guys can drool over them again :)

     Lobsters are around $13.99 to $15.99 lb here. wife just looked at theis post and asked could we move to the noreast coast?

     We do boiled lobsters once a year for our anniverserry.

     We boil em spicy like crawfish or crabs.

     i have also injected the tail and claws w/ cajun injector and done them on the grill.

    Now that is a fine looking serving.  We do the same thing out this way but it's Dungeness Crab or King Crab.  But truthfully, they don't just compare to Lobster.  Gotta love living on the coasts.  Unfortunately, we're experiencing a Red Tide so no clams or oysters for now.

  20. Wow that looks so good. If my wife would eat it I would spend the crazy amount of money here in Nebraska to get one every once in awhile. Lucky You!
