OT- SV lobster tail, with lobster oil, and mukimo

edited August 1 in EggHead Forum
Inspired  by a recent thread about lobster. I’ve made the lobster oil before, and it beats the pants off the usual butter, or garlic butter,  dip. 

Made the lobster oil yesterday. Shells, fennel bulb, bag leaves, garlic, peppercorns, tomato paste, and some other stuff. Rested overnight. Strained all the solids out today. 


Learned about mukimo from a David Chang podcast. And , then remembered, that caliqueen gave me the book (In Bibi’s Kitchen) for my birthday 🤦🏾‍♂️ 

Tweaked the recipe a bit, mainly by adding berbere, since the recipe just called for salt to season it. 

Onions, cannellini beans, hominy. Puréed kale, and mashed potatoes went in later. 



The tails were kinda small. Sprinkled some Oakridge BBQ SPOGOS, and topped with butter pats. SV at 140F x 20mins. 

Plated:


Farkin’ unreal, if I do say so myself 😎

    Blowing it out of the water of late.  Another totally inspiring and impressive cook.  Wow!

    Thanks for the kind words.

    The mukimo really works. It's a complete side - protein, starch, fat all in one. Topped some with a fried egg this morning, and it was pretty damn good.

    Thanks. My usual baking/cooking/prep time is after the fam goes to bed. I do some of my best work in the wee hours of the morning :)

    Your awesome cooks make me realize about the only thing I might do better than you today, may be drinking a very dry, formerly 2 olive, Bombay Sapphire Martini. Shaken, not stirred.

    The preamble of our disappointing meal, compared to your delivery, again.

    You Rock.

    Had two, I thoroughly do not recommend ding so at 7500 ft elevation, when you are getting up to hike and scale 13,000 ft asl peaks, leaving at 4:00a.m. Just sayin’ the next day was brutal.

    Not as young as I used to be.
