valentines day surf and turf

edited 7:57AM in EggHead Forum
I know there have been a couple of small threads on lobster on the egg the last couple of days and i have seen ricks awesome pictures and techniques for lobster on the egg. I bought a box of frozen lobster tails at restaurant depot this past weekend. There are 10 tails that are fairly good sized. My wife has never been impressed with my suggestion of cooking lobster tails on the egg. I have never cooked lobster before so i would like to try 3-4 on the egg but also would like to have a more traditional technique as backup in case i screw up and also to compare too. Hopefully i will convince her that the egg is the way to go. I know frozen is not ideal but its what i have too work with. Also have a couple of thick fillets to put on as well. any suggestions for egging and broiling would be appreciated. Hope everyone has a Happy Valentines day.

    <p />ugavet,
    hey, nothing wrong with frozen tails... all of mine have been frozen. just make sure you let them thaw completely, say overnight. if they're not completely thawed when you're ready, put in a bowl of water in the fridge to speed the thaw.
    you've seen the way i do it on the egg, by halving the tails lengthwise, the best way for me... they cook faster this way, you can tell when they're done because you can see the meat, and the meat can bathe in melted butter in the shell "boat". for me, they're done when the flesh is white and no longer translucent and there is a hint of browning on the top[p]before the egg, i was boiling the tails in water on the stove. i'll never do it that way again if i can help it! heheh[p]<img src=>[p]good luck!

  • Rick's Tropical Delight,
    Looks great, as usual! The steak makes me want to run right out and...oh, yeah...can't run out, I'm snowed in. Again. How 'bout you?[p]When cooking tails with steak, I'm assuming you trex the steaks. So when do you add the tails to the grill? How do you coordinate the different cooking times and temps?

    <p />alb,
    yep, snowed in again here... i just got done plowing the neighbor's and my driveway with the tractor.[p]and yes, i trexed the steak first then added the tail after the temps came down a bit, then put the steak back on to take off a little moo. really kinda just wingin it till it looked right.[p]cutting the tails in half prior to cooking makes it easier to serve and eat as well. just plate and have at it with a fork.
