If you thought Shrimp Tempura was good, you’re going to go out of your mind with this Lobster Tails recipe. Especially if you your a fan of good Tempura because you’ve got the best of both worlds right here. As you may or may not know, Prawns and Lobsters are in the same crustacean family, only Lobster’s are generally much larger. So, from my perspective, bigger is better and I show you how to make Perfect Tempura Batter, in one of my older posts, and take you straight to one of the best appetizers ever invented.
What size Lobster Tails to use
I’ve been seeing 4 to 6 oz Lobster Tails on sale in just about every grocery store that has a seafood department for only about $5 bucks a piece, lately. So you really can’t go wrong with that kind of deal if you want to give this a try sometime. Really you can use just about any size you want. You’ll just have to adjust the cooking time if you get any thicker than what I’m recommending here for this Tempura recipe. Just be sure you buy enough Lobster Tails because these things are so delicious and they go down fast.
When I think of Beef Stew, I’m reminded of those Sunday afternoon dinners my family would have after several hours of church. The only problem was that any stew that my Mom made wasn’t very good because it was always runny, watered down and flavorless. So when I set out to make Beef Stew for my own family now, I follow one simple rule; make it better than Mom’s recipe(which isn’t hard to do BTW). But don’t let this sob story fool you. This recipe is amazing and I even show you how to cheat!
How do I make Beef Stew
All I do is cook a thick hearty soup with fresh chopped vegetables from my garden and I add a well seasoned steak. Then I add a few seasonings. That’s it and that’s all. Now I do cheat a little when I don’t have time to make my own Chicken and Brown gravy. But after you try this Beef Stew recipe you’ll quickly understand why I do it. Packaged gravy is cheap, it saves time preparing it and it makes this soup taste phenomenal!
Garlic Parmesan anything, right? Well these Garlic Parmesan Brussels Sprouts are no different and they’re just as delicious as they sound. Maybe even better. I was recently using this exact recipe on Chicken Poppers, which are amazing actually, when I realized Garlic Parmesan Brussels Sprouts would be great for everyone at this years Thanksgiving. Truthfully, I’m not a big fan of Brussels either but I’m telling you that this recipe is sure to turn around the most stubborn Sprouts hater.
More Brussels Sprouts
Now just as a reminder, last year, I filmed Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprouts. So I’d highly recommend checking that recipe out if you missed it or if you’d like to revisit it, because those are really tasty too. And on a side note, Thanksgiving is just around the corner, so I’ll be plugging several recipes that will help you and your family celebrate this years feast below and in the next few recipe posts before the holiday.
