Steak and Lobster
BROILED LOBSTER TAIL
- 4 lobster tails
- 2 teaspoons Kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon coarse pepper
- ¼ c. lemon juice
Cut shell on back side with sharp scissors down the middle until you get to the tail. Pull meat out of shell being careful not to separate meat from the tail end. Lay meat over shell and make an incision along each side of the tail meat about halfway through to the bottom. This will butterfly the tail and allow the meat to cook evenly.
Drizzle melted butter over lobster meat; sprinkle with salt and pepper and lemon juice. Place lobster on rack 4-6 inches from broiler. Broil 12 minutes. Serve on shell with melted butter.
GRILLED PRIME RIB
- Four, 12 oz. All Natural Rib Eye Steak
- Olive oil
- Kosher salt
- Coarse, black pepper
Brush steaks with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over a hot fire to desired temperature; about 4 minutes per side for medium.
Serve with the lobster, steamed broccoli crowns and whipped potatoes.
This dish represents the best of summer! Tangy, cold, Gazpacho acts a base for the striking tower of perfectly ripe mangoes, tomatoes, and avocado. The whole stack is topped with ice cold Dungeness crabmeat. Served with lime wedges to give the whole thing that little “kick” that makes this one of my very favorite summer dishes! We have done this dish before. A couple of you commented that you loved it, but that it was really time consuming to make the Gazpacho. Here is an updated version with a sauce that takes 30 seconds to make. How’s that for a time saver!
The technique used in this recipe is a really cool one to have in your arsenal of kitchen tricks. A terrine is very often stacked, hence the name of this dish. The recipe calls for PVC to use as a stacking vessel, but I used a can of enchilada sauce that had both the top and bottom cut off. I washed the can and used it to stack the food. Any clean cylinder will work as long as it is at least 3″ in diameter and between 4″ and 7″ tall.
- ¼ cup diced ripe tomato
- ¼ cup diced ripe mango
- ¼ cup diced avocado
- 2 oz. king crabmeat
- ½ cup sauce (see recipe below)
- Lime, black sesame seeds and cilantro for garnish
On a cold, large plate, spoon sauce up to rim of plate. Place a 3″ diameter piece of PVC that is about 5″ tall or other cylinder in middle of sauce. Stack first four ingredients; tomato, mango, avocado, then crab. Tamp each layer down lightly with any object that comfortably fits into the cylinder (a clean wine bottle works well). Insert wine bottle or other object into cylinder and apply GENTLE pressure to the terrine while removing cylinder. This takes a little practice, but take heart! You can always eat the ones that fall! Remove PVC and garnish with lime wheels ½ dipped in black sesame seeds and a cilantro sprig on top.
For the sauce:
- One, 12 oz. jar of cocktail sauce
- ½ cup sour cream
Mix together with a wire whip until completely blended with no lumps.
