I cleaned my freezer today. Lucky for you.
I found this lobster bisque from January, 2010.
I also found this crabmeat mixture. It may have spinach in it. I don't even remember this. I am stoked. I have a terrific meal planned.
Here's the crabmeat dip I found. It smells very fresh. I think there's some spinach in there. And I totally cannot remember what this was leftover from.
Add in the crabmeat mixture. Taste test. Wonderful flavors. Smooth. Rich. I can taste everything - lobster, crab, bacon, potato, onion, and celery. This was the perfect meal for a cold, rainy day.
I didn't think anything else was needed. Apparently Mr. Hawthorne did.
Fried oyster with remoulade sauce. Spicy Remoulade 1 cup celery, chopped 1 cup yellow onion, chopped 1 cup white vinegar 1 oz. capers 1/2 TB fresh minced garlic 4 cups mayo 4 TB coarse ground mustard 1/2 TB Kosher salt 1/2 TB fresh black pepper 1 tsp cayenne pepper 1/4 tsp cumin 1/4 tsp coriander Process first 5 ingredients until smooth. Transfer to large bowl. Combine all ingredients and whisk until well incorporated. This makes a ton of remoulade. Adjust measurements to make a smaller amount. It's the best remoulade I've ever had. I got the recipe from Mark, the owner of Lucky 12 Tavern, in Nags Head.
