Saturday, March 28, 2015

Best place to buy Spiny Lobster if you dont catch them yourself on a snorkling tour (check to ensure you are in-season.  If you don't catch them live, Prime Island Meats often has them in stock in season - check the directory):




6 spiny lobsters

2 cloves garlic minced

1/4 cup finely diced red onion

1 teaspoon chopped thyme leaves

1/4 cup olive oil 2 tablespoons white or red wine vinegar





Submerge live lobsters in boiling water for 2 minutes. Remove from water. When cool enough to handle, remove heads from tails. With large knife, cut tails in half lengthwise.   


Place cut tails in large mixing bowl and toss with garlic, onion, thyme, olive oil and vinegar. Let marinate at room temperature for about 30 minutes.Preheat a charcoal grill to medium-high heat. Once fire is hot, scatter fruit wood on top and allow to burn. As soon as the wood has turned to coal, place lobster tail halves on grill, meat side down.


Cook until shell turns a lighter shade of red, about 3 to 5 minutes. Turn lobster tails and cook for an additional 3 minutes or until the meat begins to pull away from the shell. Remove lobsters from grill. Place on platter and pour remaining marinade from bowl over finished tails.
