The Minamoto Kitchoan shop near Rockefeller Center closed a few weeks ago and they have relocated to 509 Madison Ave.
I’m in Cape Cod for the week and it’s a tradition to make lobster rolls and take them to the beach (along with a bottle of rosé and some Cape Cod chips). This year, we decided to grill the fresh lobster instead of boiling it.
Even though lobsters don’t have a central nervous system or central cortex (and are unlikely to register pain), I plunged a sharp knife between its eyes in order to kill the lobster quickly and humanely. After the jump, you will see some very GRAPHIC IMAGES of the butchering of the fresh lobster, along with a recipe… CLICK HERE FOR GRAPHIC LOBSTER PHOTOS
Chapulines are a variety of grasshopper commonly eaten in some parts of Mexico. They are typically fried on a comal with garlic, lime juice, and salt flavored with agave worm extract. This tangy, aromatic snack can occasionally be found at delis and groceries in Corona, Queens.
I was able to sample some excellent chapulines this week when a student brought them in to share with the class. I expected them to be crispy but they were definitely of the juicy side, especially the plump abdomens.
