Catch of the Week
From the Proprietor

Wow, it has been chilly out.  I hope everyone is staying bundled up.  This has been an exciting week.  Monday we officially took down the divider and opened up the other side.  I am so excited for everyone to come in and see the changes!  We still have a bit of work, but we get closer and closer every day!  

As promised from last week, I would add on the Shellfish Grilling Guide:

Place shellfish on cooking grate. Cook crab, lobster, shrimp, and scallops for time given in chart or until opaque in thickest part.; turn once halfway through cooking time. Scrub and rinse live clams, mussels, and oysters; cook until shells open. Throw away any that do not open.
                                      SIZE                      COOKING TIME
Crab, whole        About 2 1/2 pounds       10-12 minutes
Lobster, whole   About 2 pounds              18-20 minutes
Lobster tails           8-10 ounces                 8-10 minutes

                        Medium (21-25 per pound)   4-5 minutes

                  Large (10-15 per pound)      5-6 minutes

    Extra Large (under 10 per pound)      6-8 minutes

Scallops, shell off 1-2 inches in diameter        4-6 minutes
hard-shell Medium                                  5-8 minutes
in shell Under 12 per pound             4-5 minutes
in shell  Small                                       8 minutes

We look forward to seeing all of you soon!
