Formerly a Lobster Lover, Fanatic Finds this Food Fascinating

You know the deserted island game, right? I play it a lot because it just so happens that you can easily play it with yourself and I’m the person I spend the most amount of time with (awwww). I used to say that if I could only take three foods with me to the deserted island, one of them would definitely be lobster.

Sadly, a few years ago I developed an allergy to them. Everytime I ate one I experienced abdominal pain (right under my rib cage on my right side, if you must know) that made me want to kill myself. I should have gone to the hospital, it hurt that bad. But the thought of going to a hospital made me want to kill myself. I ate lobster two more times after my initial experience with the pain/lobster connection, just to test the hypothesis. Ever the experimenter, I am. Research resulted in more excruciating pain. Each time I said, “ok, next time I am going to the hospital.” I think it is my gall bladder but that is not a nice subject for a food blog so we will save it for another time. And besides, I am not really a doctor and I don’t even play one on TV.

Anyway, the moral of the story is that I still love to look at lobster, wax poetic and think about how wonderful I know it tastes. I do this even though  I know I will never eat more than just a tiny bite or two (or a spoon or two of that wonderful bisque), ever again.

That having been said, back on the subject of sous vide cooking, here is a wonderful blog post  that tells you how to cook the stuff. If you don’t want to kill your own, you can just do a tail (IMHO, the inferior part) using this guy’s techniques. Enjoy…and think of me!
