Eat Lobster the Right Way: Tips 6 Steps and a Video!

eat lobster dra martha castro noriega tijuana mexico

 

 

THE WAY I EAT LOBSTER

Eating lobster is one of my great pleasures when relishing food. Lobster is very palatable, but handling it can be quite messy; fun, but messy.

If there were a tidy way to do it, restaurants wouldn’t supply their customers with a bib, but the succulent meat makes all the effort worthwhile.

Although techniques can vary depending on local tradition and personal preference, here there are several tips and steps to guide you to help you get the most out of your next lobster meal.

  1. Separate the tail from the rest of the body by bending the lobster backward.

  2. Snap off the flippers, and push the meat out of the shell using a fork at the flipper end of the tail.

  3. Twist off the claws, and gently move the pincher from side to side until you feel it snap. Gently pull it away.

  4. Gently crack the claws open with a nutcracker to release the meat.

  5. Pluck off the legs. If you’d like, use a small fork to break the shell.

  6. Crack the body of the lobster open to remove the meat.

Healthy Exotic Food Recipe to cook Thai Curry Vegetable Soup

 

healthy exotic food dra martha castro tijuana

Ingredients

Serves 4
Produce
  • 1 bunch Baby bok choy
  • 1 Handful Cilantro, fresh
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 1 tbsp Ginger, fresh
  • 1 Lime
  • 1/2 Red onion
  • 1 Sweet potato (about 1 lb.), small
Canned Goods
  • 1 13 oz can Coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp Thai red curry paste
  • 4 cups Vegetable or chicken broth
Condiments
  • 1/2 tbsp Fish sauce
  • 1 Sriracha

Pasta & Grains
  • 3 1/2 oz Rice vermicelli noodles
Baking & Spices
  • 1/2 tbsp Brown sugar

Oils & Vinegars

  • 2 tbsp Neutral cooking oil

INSTRUCTIONS

 

  • Prepare the vegetables for the soup and garnishes first, so they’re ready to go when needed. Mince the garlic and grate the ginger using a small-holed cheese grater. Peel and dice the sweet potato into one-inch cubes. Wash the bok choy well, then chop into one-inch strips, separating the fibrous stalks from the delicate green ends. Thinly slice the red onion and roughly chop the cilantro.

 

  • Add the cooking oil to a large soup pot along with the minced garlic, grated ginger, and Thai red curry paste. Sauté the garlic, ginger, and curry paste over medium heat for 1-2 minutes.

 

  • Add the diced sweet potato and chopped bok choy stalks to the pot (save the leafy green ends for later) along with the chicken or vegetable broth. Bring the pot to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to low and let simmer for 5-7 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are tender.

 

  • While the soup is simmering, bring a small pot of water to a boil for the vermicelli. Once boiling, add the vermicelli and boil for 2-3 minutes, or just until tender. Drain the rice noodles in a colander and set aside.

 

  • Once the sweet potatoes are tender, add the coconut milk, fish sauce, and brown sugar to the soup. Stir, taste, and adjust the fish sauce or brown sugar if needed. Finally, add the bok choy greens and let them wilt in the hot soup.

 

  • To serve, divide the rice vermicelli among four bowls. Ladle the soup and vegetables over the noodles, then top with red onion, cilantro, a wedge or two of lime, and a drizzle of sriracha.

Exotic Food and Flowers

Flowers are so beautiful, they look gorgeous in their nature habitat, in our homes. Flowers are given to show love, passion, compassion, celebration, happiness. But flowers are much more than that. Lots of flowers are edible, like these common petunias!

 

exotic food dr martha castro noriega tijuana

 

Edible flowers is a trend in gastronomy, and they range from the small and delicate, intended to give just a hint of flavour, to a mouthful, without dominating a dish. Those varieties include marguerites, fuchsias and tagetes (a member of the sunflower family), large and muscular enough in flavour to elbow the cutlet right off your plate.

Did you know you could eat tulips? Club Gascon chef Pascal Aussignac’s green tulip primavera with truffle vinaigrette is one of London’s most iconic restaurant dishes. The lightly scented flowers have an earthy, rich, peppery, herbaceous flavour, and crunchy texture.

Super Tasty Crispy Mustard Chicken Recipe with Spring Potato Salad – P #392

Chicken Recipe

 

chicken recipe dr martha castro noriega tijuana

 

Skinless, boneless chicken thighs are meatier, quicker to cook, and surprisingly healthier than you might think. They’re also budget friendly and less expensive than breasts. It definitely saves you money and adds a delicious flavor to your meal.

 

chicken recipe enjoy dra martha castro tijuana

 

Chicken thighs are the most delicious alternative. Marinate them so they can soak up flavor, grill for a smoky crispness, or coat in crumbs and pan fry for a lighter “fried” chicken. 

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 lb. yellow new potatoes (about 25)

Kosher salt and pepper

medium chicken thighs

2 tsp. Dijon mustard

2 tbsp. olive oil

2 tbsp. white wine vinegar

1 tbsp. prepared horseradish

scallions, finely chopped

1 tbsp. tarragon, chopped

small radishes, thinly sliced

1/4 c. flat-leaf parsley, chopped

 

Super Tasty Crispy Mustard Chicken Recipe with Spring Potato Salad - P #392 2

DIRECTIONS
  1. Place potatoes in a large pot. Add enough cold water to cover, then bring to a boil. Add 1 tsp salt, reduce heat, and simmer until tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain and run under cold water to cool.
  2. While potatoes are cooking, season chicken with ¼ tsp each salt and pepper and place in a large, heavy skillet, skin side down. Brush with mustard and place a piece of foil on top. Place a second skillet on top of chicken and put heavy cans in skillet (the contents won’t cook) to weigh it down (this will flatten chicken so it cooks up evenly and extra-crisp). Cook on medium until skin is deep brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Flip chicken and cook, uncovered, until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes more.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, and horseradish; stir in scallions and tarragon. Halve potatoes (or quarter if large); toss with vinaigrette, then radishes.
  4. Fold parsley into potato salad and serve with chicken.

Add the potatoes and cook for about 6 minutes. Add the kielbasa then add the live lobsters, one at at time, claw first. Set the timer for 12 minutes. By then the lobsters will be cooked completely through and the meat will be solid white (if you are using a meat thermometer the temperature of the tail should read 180ºF).

At the 7 minute mark add the clams to the pot. When there are 4 minutes to go on the timer, add the corn.

When the time is up, drain the water from the pot and spread the contents from the boil on a large covered table or add the contents into large serving bowls.

Serve with grilled bread, lemon wedges and plenty of melted butter for dipping.
