The Feast of Many Names

I am passionate about Lobsters, especially feasting on them.

The Spiny Lobster, also known as Rock Lobster, Crawfish or Sea Crayfish lacks claws, but other than that, it is similar to a normal large Lobster. The fine specimen below is a wonderful 7 coloured Spiny Lobster, considered a prize catch and honoured guest in the Steamer.

Looks like something from Outer Space instead of Deep Sea.

Careful!, don’t let him get away…

I think that steaming is the best way to enjoy this crustacean, especially when it is super fresh. I have no qualms with killing food, especially if I am going to be eating it. Our Guest weighed in at 2½ kilos.

To serve, I have simply split it in to two.

The meat is easier to remove whilst it is still warm. I usually eat my Lobsters with a simple Spicy & Sour (Chilli, Garlic, Fish Sauce, Lime Juice) dipping sauce, or a Tangy Hot Mayonnaise based dip.

Whatever name you want to call it, all I know is, it is divine 🙂

  1. I am starting to believe that the active working model model for the movie Alien was a Lobster. What a strange appearing creature!
