I hosted a celebration for a good friend at home with members of my family and the birthday guest. Family, friends, a good meal, wine and laughter. You cannot ask for more.
Sliced cucumbers with spicy crème fraiche and smoked salmon
Clams with Chorizo
2 lb. each Grilled lobster
Garlicky Sautéed Broccoli Rabe
Buttery corn on the Cobb
Chocolate, chocolate decadent cake
I had a hard time with the 8 lobsters…a few fell on the floor and I was screeching as I picked them up and then one tried to get out of the pot…you had to be there.
I was told that the most humane way was to put them in boiling water and then after a few minutes take them out and prepare them. Slice them open, butter and season them with salt/ pepper then grill for about 15 minutes.
My friends, next time I go to a seafood restaurant.
BUEN PROVECHO AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY DELMAR!
