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

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.

  5. Drizzle with the argan oil, honey and lemon juice along with plenty of salt, and toss well. Scatter over the remaining herbs and pomegranate seeds. Serve dish, carved into slices, with the salad and crispy roast potatoes.

Check your freezers for Contaminated Beef with Salmonella

…get it out and throw it away. I would throw away all ground beef bought even after the day that the USDA has given (see below the *). USDA inspected and beef was released for sale. Where and when the contamination occurred? Remember, your health is first.

Check your freezers for Contaminated Beef with Salmonella 2

*Recalled products will have the establishment number “EST. 267” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has announced a massive recall of more than 6.5 million pounds of beef products that are contaminated with bacteria Salmonella Newport.

The Food Safety and Inspection Service division of the USDA says the health risk is high in the Class 1 recall.

USDA Recall Classifications
Class I This is a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.
Class II This is a health hazard situation where there is a remote probability of adverse health consequences from the use of the product.
Class III This is a situation where the use of the product will not cause adverse health consequences.

The establishment JBS Tolleson, Inc. announced the product recall, which includes ground beef, were packaged on various dates from July 26, 2018, to September 7, 2018.

Check your freezers for Contaminated Beef with Salmonella 3

At least 261 types of products with various brand names were shipped to New Mexico according to the list of recalled products.

Showcase/Walmart was the primary brand of recalled meat with other brands being Cedar River Farms Natural, Beef and Gourmet Burger.

Symptoms of salmonellosis usually occur between 6 to 72 hours after you ingest the bacteria. The most common symptoms include:

  • diarrhea, which may contain blood or mucous

  • fever

  • headache

  • stomach cramps

  • nausea

  • vomiting

  • dehydration, especially among infants and the elderly.

In rare cases, septicaemia (local infection) may develop as a complication of salmonellosis.

Messy Fun Food of the Day: French Onion Soup

Make sure to make it messy…it tastes better!

Messy Fun Food of the Day: French Onion Soup 4

INGREDIENTS

  • large yellow onions, sliced thinly
  • cup heavy cream
  • tablespoons unsalted butter
  • teaspoon salt
  • cups dry white wine
  • quarts chicken stock
  • ounces Gruyere cheese, grated (a Cheddar would work, too)
  • slices of hole-y, country bread

Messy Fun Food of the Day: French Onion Soup 5

COOKING METHOD

  1. In a large, wide-bottomed pot, combine the onions, cream, butter, and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, over medium to medium-high heat until the onions soften and the cream reduces to its solids. This should take anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes, depending on your onions and your pot. Then turn the heat up slightly, so the onions and cream bubble at a slow boil, and cook without stirring for about six or seven minutes, until the onions on the bottom are deeply brown. (Depending on your stove, this might mean at medium heat or at high. Don’t go overboard: you don’t want the onions blackened.) Stir the onions and add a half-cup of wine and deglaze the pan, scraping up all the burnt and browned bits. Then repeat the process: leave the onions without stirring for another six minutes or so, then deglaze. Repeat until you have used all 2 cups of wine. The onions should now be a rich, dark brown color; they should smell divine.
  2. Add the stock. (Use less if you want more of a stew.) Bring to a simmer and cook for about 15 minutes. Season with salt if needed.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400. Toast the bread until it is dry and crusty, about 15 minutes. Ladle the soup into either ovenproof bowls or a single large baking dish (if the latter, place it on a baking sheet: it will spill). Fill the bowls or dish to nearly the rim. Float the bread on the soup and sprinkle with the Gruyere. Bake until the cheese is bubbly and browned, 20 to 30 minutes. Let cool until it will no longer burn your tongue. Devour!

Steaks come in all shapes and sizes and depending on the section of the cow they originate from can have a huge influence on price and cooking technique. According to Jimmy, “You may want to choose a cut like Flat Iron or Flank Steak if you are serving a larger group.

Consider buying a thicker, multiple serving premium steak such as a Porterhouse or Bone-in Rib-Eye. Return the sliced steak to the bone before serving. It is a very nice presentation for a small dinner party. Thicker boneless cuts such as New York Steak also make great multiple serving steaks.”

Making the” salsa. Scoop the tomatoes, chiles, cilantro, garlic and white onion into a bowl and mix well. Stir in the hot sauce, ketchup and optional lime juice. Taste and season with salt, usually about a scant teaspoon.

Making the shrimp filling. Heat a very large (12-inch), heavy skillet—nonstick works really well—over medium-high. Pour in 2 tablespoons of the oil and when it is hot, add the “salsa” vegetables. Cook, stirring regularly, until everything softens together, about 5 minutes. Scoop in the shrimp and stir until they are barely cooked through (they can still be slightly translucent at the center)—about 3 minutes. Scoop the shrimp mixture into a bowl, wash and dry the skillet, and return it to medium heat.

Assembling the encamaronadas. Heavily film the bottom of the skillet with oil. When hot, lay in a tortilla. After a few seconds, flip it, then scatter a couple of tablespoons of shredded cheese over one side, top with a generous tablespoon of the filling. Use tongs to fold the uncovered part of the tortilla over the filling, forming a turnover. Gently press flat. Continue to make encamaronadas in the same fashion until the skillet is full, frying them until crisp—2 to 3 minutes per side. As they become crisp, remove them to a plate lined with paper towels. Serve right away with more Mexican hot sauce.
