    That’s some big lobsters. Nice.

    I could never do that! It’s a childhood thing I have… when my dad was steaming crabs, I heard the little screams and them scratching the sides to get out! It’s a wonder I even enjoy them. I just won’t do the kill :)

    @John – They were literally two meals worth. So good.

    @Kim – I have a memory of being little “playing” with Maine lobsters on my kitchen floor with my sister. We started singing “Help Me Rhonda” once they were put in the pot, changing the lyrics “get her out of my heart” to “get me out of the pot.” Weird, I know. :)

    We used to race them before we cooked them.

    Winner went in the pot last.

    Only problem is that I don’ t eat food that looks the same on my plate as it does in its natural habitat. (now chop that lobstah up, add some mayo, and serve it to me on a hot dog bun, and we’re in business).

    @WRH/Jane – I’m amazed to find out you would even eat it that way. Anytime I’m about to post a seafood blog, I think to myself, WRH/Jane is gonna hate this.

    When I was a kid, on family vacations up north, I’d catch crayfish (like tiny lobsters), and at the end of a week we’d put everything I caught into a big pot and boil ‘em. One year it was 150.

    @Kim – My dad told me it’s not them screaming – it’s the sound of the excess pressure from their innards boiling escaping through newly formed cracks in their shells. Like a tea pot whistle. I know – I totally didn’t help, did I.

    But 150 screaming crayfish? Sounded like an operatic choir to me. Operatic choir dipped in butter.

    @Dan of Steel – How I love me some crayfish. Operatic choir dipped in butter, indeed. Dammit, now I’m hungry.

    Also?

    If I ever start a band? I’m calling dibbs on “150 Screaming Crayfish.”

    Mmm. Now I want lobster.
