Es cierto! Nunca habia cocido una langosta viva. Fui a mi supermercado favorito (Dierbergs) a ver que tipo de pescado fresco tenian hoy. Tenian una venta en las langostas!! $9.99 cada una y de un tama~no bastante decente!! Me dije a mi misma que seria perfecto experimentar con la langosta ahora que mi esposo esta de viaje. Si queda mal...no sufre :o) Yo no sabia si me iba a atrever a matar la pobre langosta (en mi mente una escena de la pelicula Julie and Julia).

Bueno, la cocine por 11 minutos. El problema es que no se cuenta pesaba y por lo tanto estaba adivinando en cuanto al tiempo necesario. Creo que la cocine de mas porque (aunque no estaba mala) la textura quedo un poco mas densa de lo que yo esperaba.

Aqui estan mis fotos de hoy con Larry, mi primera langosta viva!!

ZssMama: Thank you! The blog is about my 1st time cooking a live lobster. I cooked it for 11 minutes but I'm not quite sure that was the best thing to do. I was eye-balling the lobster's weight. Next time I will make sure I know how much it weights and cook it accordingly.

About Me
Hola!! I'm a 36 years old Nuclear Medicine Technologist, mom to the smartest and handsomest 16 year old boy (I love you Dan!) and wife to a retired military man. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico but the military brought me to Ft.Bragg, NC where I lived for 13 years. After my husband retired we moved to St. Louis, MO (in August 2009). I'm currently job hunting. I've met some great people in the area but I still miss my family in PR and my friends in NC. Planning meals, cooking and baking take a big chunk of my day and make it more bearable.
My favorite things to cook
A challenge! That's my favorite thing to cook. Making my own versions of popular restaurant foods, making international dishes, making food look pretty and yummilicious... I just LOVE to cook! :o)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being from Puerto Rico, it would be a sin not to mention Arroz con Gandules (Rice with Pigeon Peas), Pernil Asado (Roasted Pork), Tostones (Fried Plantains), and Pasteles (hmm...pasteles is kinda like a Puertorican tamale, made with green bananas or yuca root - or even a variation of roots). I do love Bistec Encebollado though and I think my mom makes the best in the world!! I did find a pretty good recipe for this dish at Goya.com
My cooking triumphs
A triumph for me consists of my husband, or my son, or anyone to tell me that they loved my dish. I love feedback in the kitchen and most of the feedback I get is very good I must say :o)
My cooking tragedies
I just got a new stove when I moved to my new house and I just can't figure out the right setting to cook pancakes!! Hahaha. I always burn one or two before I can get it right and then I FORGET what temperature setting I used!!! I can't remember anything in particular that was a huge disaster but I do mess something up every now and then. Hey, it's life!! Life's boring without mess-ups!!
