|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
Clams, hard-shell Medium 5-8 minutes
Mussels, in shell Under 12 per pound 4-5 minutes
Oysters, in shell Small 8 minutes
We look forward to seeing all of you soon!
