one-m.jpg[p]Some spiny tails from miniseason I thawed this afternoon[p]two-m.jpg[p]Removed membrane, fins and split the tails. Seasoned with butter and Old Bay.[p]three-m.jpg[p]I soaked some cedar planks in water, preheated them 9 minutes @ 425 dome, and put the tails on for 12 minutes per W-S recipe.[p]four-m.jpg[p]Really got into the Dallas- Seattle game, so just threw some frozen broccoli in the mic and sat down to eat. The cedar smoke worked wonders on the lobster- will definitely try again. I'll eat the other tail for lunch tomorrow with some black beans and rice.[p]BigT[p]

    Rick's Tropical Delight,[p]I always dive the two day sport diving miniseason in Fort Pierce, FL. It is held the last Wed & Thurs of July, and the limit is twelve a day for two days.[p]The water in Fort Pierce is a little greener / colder than the Keys, but the bugs are as plentiful and much bigger. [p]Do you dive?

    ClayQ,[p]Thanks. The hardest part of the cook was remembering where I put the jigsaw...[p]BigT

  • BigT,
    i haven't dove for years, but i'd like to get back into it.[p]i was pretty heavy into underwater photography for awhile... [p][p]

    Rick's Tropical Delight,[p]I am still afflicted with the UW photo bug, with a special affinity for big critters v. macro...I usually have a camera, a speargun or lobster tools on me when I dive.[p]BigT
