Lobster

We made Lobster the other night.  Being a cajun, I really wanted to boil them the way we boil crawfish, but since I'd never cooked lobster before, I decided to steam them to allow us to enjoy the natural flavor.  It turned out to be a great choice.  I still plan to do lobster Cajun Style.

Steamed Lobster
salt (lots)
celery
onion
garlic
bay leaves
peppercorns
crab boil liquid
Old Bay
lemons
water
butter (melted, set aside for dipping)

Rough chop everything.  Add to pot large enough to fit your lobsters.  Cover with water.  Insert steamer basket.  Bring to boil.  Add lobsters.  Boil 5-6 minutes.  Move lobsters around to cook evenly.  Boil 5-6 minutes.  Remove from pot.  Peel and eat!







Pan Sauteed Asparagus
butter
olive oil
salt
pepper
garlic powder (sub actual garlic if desired)
onion powder (sub actual onion if desired)

Heat pan.  Add olive oil.  Add butter.  (adding butter and oil together prevents to the butter from burning).  add seasonings.  Saute' until desired tenderness is reached. (I like the tops to get a little crunchy).  Eat!
