The Lobster-My Favorite Seafood

All about my Favorite Seafood….  LOBSTER

Whenever I go to a Seafood Restaurant, you bet I always ask for their Lobster Menu and I always find it very expensive among other seafood menus.  So I decided to get to know about this animal.  Thank goodness we have Wikepedia, it is easy to search anything you want to know 🙂  How about you?  Have you ever thought of wanting to really know about the food you crave a lot?  Well, I just got to meet my favorite seafood, “The Lobster”.  And here are the things I found out.  I need not to write all the details about it, you can always click on the Wikepedia 🙂 but I will jot down some of its very interesting facts and some characteristics which I find already helpful for me to know:

Well, My Lobster belong to an invertebrate animals with high protective exoskeleton and a blue blood.  Wow, interesting!  Some lobsters have claws and some don’t, but I prefer a lobster with claws.  Lobsters are generally omnivorous (eat either other animals and plants).  If necessity arises they scavenge and if captivated, their characteristics may have the tendency to result with cannibalism.  Yay!

Lobsters are found in all oceans. They live on rocky, sandy, or muddy bottoms from the shoreline to beyond the edge of the continental shelf. They generally live singly in crevices or in burrows under rocks.

Here are some yummy lobster recipes you might like to try yourself. I like to share them with you.  Hmmm lobster is yummy! Enjoy 🙂

Broiled Lobster with Crab Dip Stuffing

1 to 1 1/2 lb lobster
1 lb fresh blue crabmeat
1/4 lb whipped cream cheese (at room temperature)
The rest of this recipe is to your taste.
mayonnaise
fresh garlic
chopped jalapeno peppers
juice from peppers
Old Bay Seasoning
Parmesan cheese
grated Cheddar cheese
butter
wooden skewers (for inserting in lobster tail)
Set oven on broil and allow to heat.
1) Mix cream cheese, crabmeat, mayonnaise, garlic, peppers, juice, cheeses, Old Bay Seasoning; set aside for 15 minutes in refrigerator. Melt butter.
2) Split lobster cavity and tail, clean out insides. Crack lobster claws with small mallet, insert skewer into tail cavity to prevent tail from curling.

5) Bake lobster for approximately 15 minutes or until stuffing heats through.
