It was Husband’s birthday recently and with a newborn there was little chance of making a real meal or hitting a restaurant. Instead I made it over to Coastal Seafoods and picked up some pre-made specialities, including the Imperial Crab Cakes, Lobster Bisque and a slab of fresh tuna. All were fabulous and rich. What did we do with the tuna? Stay tuned…

I recently signed up for weekly email announcements from Lunds. They send out a list of their sale items and a coupon. This week Lobster Tails are on sale for 9.99 for a 5-6 oz tail. The sale led us to believe we needed a lobster fix. It has been a long time since we had such a treat. But when I did the math, I realized that 9.99 really wasn’t such a bargain for such a small tail. If you get a 5 ouncer, that’s still nearly $30 per pound. And really, if you’re going for Lobster, you really want a little more than just 5 ounces, right? So, instead of heading to our neighborhood Lunds, we went the other direction to our neighborhood Coastal Seafoods and bought a couple tails that were a little more substantial. And at just a little over $30 per pound, the price ended up just a little bit higher.

And man, were they delicious. We kept it really simple and just brushed them with some melted butter and sprinkled them with a touch of that special Voodoo Rub from St. John Spice. We baked them in a 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes and served them with, what else, but wasabi mashed potatoes and some local corn on the cob. It made for a pretty bland plate, but an awfully tasty one.

The sale at Lunds is on until the 8th, while supplies last, I guess. But Coastal is always there with the highest quality seafood in the area.

On the way home from work last Friday, I stopped at Coastal Seafoods to get a gift card for a friend, and picked up some tuna for us. The Tuna Tacos from the New Scenic Cafe were still on my mind, and I thought it would be fun to try to recreate them. A quick stop at United Noodles lead me to an Avocado, Wonton wrappers, as well as Napa Cabbage and Peanut sauce for the peanut slaw.
