Default Lobster Tacos

Apparently someone owed Donna big, she came home from the dive shop with them and gave them to me. She'll eat them, but doesn't really care one way or the other. Oh darn! They were pretty big tails! I grilled them on Homey and pulled them off very rare.


I chilled them down overnight (Well, after a healthy sampling)

I made up a pico de gallo using tomato, avocado, jalapeno, cilantro, onion, Tabasco, salt, black pepper, and key lime juice.


The bugs


I sauteed some sweet onion, garlic, cumin, chili powder, cayenne, and salt in evoo. The lobster meat was added, after the onions were soft, just until hot.


I took flour tortillas into a CI skillet and melted queso and cheddar cheeses on them. Once melted, I wrapped a hard corn tortilla with the cheesy flour tortilla.



The tacos were first layered with the pico de gallo, followed with a generous helping of the succulent white and orange lobster. Served with sour cream, chilled lettuce, and thin slices of red onion. Twas really nice. I hope who ever owed her isn't paid up yet! Thanks for looking.

Man those look fantastic. I need to get lobster into my life - it just isn't something that occurs to me often but I love it. Thanks for the awesome pron and inspiration.

Now...you do a little sausage making, right? See where I'm going with this?

I can't believe I didn't get a call...though it explains why you weren't answering your phone....

Those look heart-breakingly tasty...I'd better not tell my wife you didn't call on this one... :P

I love seeing how you cut those tails. How long were they on the grill..I know it couldn't have been long. Did you add any butter before the flip. Do share any grilling secrets for those babies.
