It’s That Summer Feeling: Lobster!

Mom took me to the holy grail of homelife shopping: Costco. I was dazzled, mesmerized, and perhaps also a bit overwhelmed by the quantity of everything there, including shoppers and cars in the parking lot tranporting the said shoppers. Under her guidance, I picked up a giant bag of almond, trash bags, ziploc bags, then as we turned the corner, I saw the fresh food section. Whoa! Korean BBQ meats? Check. Poke? Check. Birthday cake? Avocado? Strawberries? Check, check, check. Then these beautiful lobster tails caught my eyes.

Growing up on the East Coast, nothing says summer quite like crabs and clams and lobsters. Lazy Sunday afternoon, broiled seafood, corn on the cobb, simple salad, and keylime pie. Now we are talking. Here is how I made my lobster tail. Enjoy!
