I wanted to put a cool resource on your radar, Lobster.com. About a month ago I wanted to do something a little different for Nicki as far as dinner and I started looking around for some options. Reno has some pretty solid food choices, I just wanted something a bit unique. In my digging around on the interweebz I found Lobster.com and thought “this might be pretty cool.” I shot the folks at lobster an email, asked a few questions and then placed an order for 2 medium sized LIVE lobsters and a pound of fresh scallops.
The photos below will give you a pretty good idea of the fiesta, but as to specifics I just followed the cooking instructions included with the shipment, steaming the lobsters. While that was rolling, i cooked the scallops in a pan with Kerry Gold butter. When the scallops were finished I carefully removed them from the pan (a set of kitchen tongs is really helpful here) and then cooked some french green beans form Trader Joe’s in the same pan, using the butter and scallop juice to flavor the green beans. I melted some more butter to dip the lobster in and added 3-4 cloves of crushed, fresh garlic to that. By the end of the meal our kitchen table was a thin layer of butter and lobster but it was amazing!
If you are looking for a little something different, either for yourself or as a holiday gift, check these folks out. they can ship anywhere in the US overnight, I’m not sure about international orders though.
Ok, hope y’all are well. I’m working on a post with my thoughts on Low carb and paleo.
