Can’t decide what to make for dinner tonight? Why not cook a lobster?
Are you tired and worn out from that agonizing decision you have to make each and every day: What to make for dinner tonight? Here’s a fresh idea: What about cooking a lobster? No? Not into that? Then it’s back to decision time! It’s bad enough that the actual making of dinner can be a drag of a chore, but even deciding what to make is a chore in itself! Chances are you do not want to have the same meal two or three times in a given week, right? Equally, you’re not into having to go out to dinner (or even get take-out) more than once a week since that’s an expense that can really add up. Especially in these troubling financial times, that’s money you don’t want to have to spend on a regular basis. Not only that, some of that food is not all that healthy so it’s a complete turnoff if you are striving to for a healthy lifestyle. Dang, it’s hard to come up with new dinner ideas all the time. So, I ask you again: If you find yourself struggling to think of an idea for dinner, cook a lobster for a change! What do you think?
Okay, okay… I know: Even the mere idea of trying to cook a lobster is enough to scare off many people, let alone actually attempting it, especially if you have never done it before. But it is no different than other foods that can be prepared in different ways. To cook a lobster, you can grill it, steam it, boil it, and even barbecue it. Try different spices each time and you will probably come up with a tasty treat you keep making all the time. Find a good method that you like and you will be cooking lobster more than you ever thought! Indeed, when you cook a lobster for the first time, you are definitely moving out of your comfort zone. But make it an adventure and a lot of fun, especially if you team up with someone else to help you.
So your dinner idea is set for tonight, right? Lobster! Head to the grocery store and pick up a lobster or two to cook later today. You want live lobster because fresh is best (and they don’t get much fresher than when they are live!). Ask the seafood clerk or other grocery staff for help if you need some quick tips on how to cook a lobster. They realize that not everyone has prepared lobster before so don’t feel silly for asking. There’s a first time for everything and cooking a lobster is no different. Do it once, twice, three times and you will have mastered the art of how to prepare lobster at home!
Experiment each time you cook a lobster. Try one cooking technique, then another. Before long, you will have several ways to cook a lobster and you and your family will absolutely love the new culinary paths you are exploring, and coming up with dinner ideas will now be a little easier as well!
Cooking one lobster or several can be quite the adventure though and actually pretty funny as you can see in this funny video clip:
Clearly, the woman in that video has never boiled lobster before! It’s not always easy to try something new, and cooking lobster can be a bit intimidating. That’s why so many people only have lobster when they go out to eat. But it’s really pretty easy - you can make lobster tonight without much trouble. Just think how amazing it will taste, butter dipped, and how proud you will feel having cooked it yourself!
So give it a go… tonight, dinner is done because you will conquer your fear and cook a lobster for all to enjoy!
