I love how humans are all "save the animals" until the correct step is to kill/eat the fark out of the invasive species.

Get the fishermen out there and let's have us a good old fashioned low country boil.

fishermen make money, hog farmers make money (sausage links), Old Bay makes money, and we all eat like kings!

Let's do this!

'They're supposed to be very good,' Pam Fuller, a biologist with the U.S. Geological Survey told CNN. 'But they can get very large, sorta like lobsters.'

I fail to see the problem here...

Also, what's with all the Asian species kicking the collective asses of our North American fauna?

Unless something has changed since the days I worked there, these are the "shrimp" you are served at Red Lobster. Tiger prawns from Asia. I will attempt GIS of how they come shipped to the restaurant. Please hold.........

Yep, pretty much like this, inside a waxy cardboard box.

And the live lobsters are alive, just in sort of a stasis from the cold, as they are shipped like this, and kept in the cool box in the kitchen(with the lettuce and cheese and such), each with their own lil cell.

Scientists fear the tigers will bring disease and competition for native shrimp. = problem

Both, however, can be eaten by humans. = solution.

Delicious served with crab:

(hot like drawn butter)

vodka: My personal taste says as crustaceans get bigger they get more bland and not as good.


Several years ago, while up in Gloucester, ME, one restaurant on the wharf had a huge lobster in the tank - it had to be 15 lbs - and some guy selected it to eat. I then heard him biatching about how tough and tasteless it was. That's what he gets for eating a senior citizen. Should have let the him die of old age.

Those farkers eat coconuts. Iirc they actually have a bladder inside them filled with coconut oil. That's right they provide their own dipping sauce.

OK, so we now have issues with an invasive species of yummy-waterbug...

...If they need help in having folks eliminate said invasive species of yummy-waterbug by eating them en masse, I'm more than happy to help. I'll even bring the drawn butter :9

/oh yes, I like me some crustaceans even more than a certain infamous Skrimp Fiend :D
//the SO will not eat them unless the crustaceans are battered...yet they happily eat any sort of sea mollusc which I jokingly term "OMFG SLUGS WITH SHELLS" in response to the "OMFG YOU'RE EATING WATERBUGS!" teasing
///also will happily eat molluscs...just some good natured ribbing taking place

All the more reason to leave the old guy alone. I have no idea how long it would take for a lobster to get as big as this one was, but considering it had evaded the pot long enough to get massive, I'd have to have just let him be the restaurant mascot - not for sale.

Generally, that just means the chef didn't know how to do cook one that big. If you don't overcook it, a twenty-five pound steamed lobster is just as tender and flavorful as a pound-and-a-quarter lobster.

Correct. It's actually more of a sauce and not just oil. It looks like yellowish mayonnaise.

Very tasty. We used to mix it in with our rice. You have to be careful with how much you eat though, or you end up with diarrhea.

Cockroaches that live in water should be chowed upon as often as cockroaches in the cupboards of a South Bronx apartment. Seafood tastes like the smell of low-tide in 95 degree humidity. Unless it's the non-stanky Swordfish type. Them there's like a damn good steak!

Reporting back. Went to Red Lobster. (I'm in GA, not a New England state, mind you). Had a "platter" with a lobster tail, skrimps, and scallops. Tasty and filled me, but I yearn for the days when I lived in CT and fine seafood was as easily had as fast food and was off the chain yummy. Fresh and Delicious.

Anyway, like I was sayin', shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that's about it.
