Images from Yesterday's Seafood Adventures at Dan The Lobster Man's

OK are the images from last night! Happy eating foodies!

Making Campfire New Zealand Lobster Tails in Dan "The Lobster Man's" Back Yard!

Dan "The Lobster Man" of Lobster Gram is the Lobster Cooking Master. I admit, everything I know about lobsters, cooking lobsters, shucking lobsters and eating lobsters has come straight from the Lobster Man. Dan gave me this recipe a few weeks ago and I made it while camping. My surroundings were a bit too loud to shoot a video, so he took care of this for me! Here is Dan "The Lobster Man" in his very own back yard showing you how to prepare exotic New Zealand Lobster tails in a not-so-exotic way...over a campfire.
Watch the pro work his lobster magic now!

Awesome Steak Rub from this Weekend!

Morning foodies! I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend! I spent most of my weekend cooking! Made a lot of tasty stuff, but I think the best was the meal I had with my parents yesterday. I had gotten a huge pack of Rib Eye steaks from Dominick's Friday night. There were 7 steaks total in this package and it was only $14. Can't beat that price. I would have taken pictures, but I was lame and left my camera in the office :(
Anyway...yesterday was family grilling time so I decided to make a good rub for the steaks and make some Hasselback potatoes (don't like the woman at all, LOVE the potato recipe!). The Rub recipe was adapted from Bobby Flay's World Famous Steak Rub from Mesa. I added a few ingredients and substituted a few to get the right rub for everyone to enjoy. It turned out great. I wish I had made the rub the day before and let the steaks rest over night, but I know better for next time.
So here it is! Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill Steak Rub recipe adapted by Nikki the Foodie

1 cup Mexican chili powder
1/3 cup Paprika
3 tablespoons ground dried oregano
3 tablespoons ground coriander
3 tablespoons dry mustard
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
1 tbs brown sugar
1 tbs powdered garlic
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper


Whisk together all ingredients. Store rub in a container with a tight fitting lid in a cool, dark, place.
