Today’s Menu: Seafood Night – Stuffed Clams, Broiled Lobster Tails w/ and Sliced New Potatoes and Mini Ears of Sweet Corn

 

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Almost a Fall day around here. It was around 54 degrees this morning and a high of 74 degrees. I guess it won’t be long. Got the cart out early and finished up some yard work. Then after Lunch it was all College Football watching! Love my Football! For Dinner tonight it’s Seafood Night – Stuffed Clams, Broiled Lobster Tails w/ and Sliced New Potatoes and Mini Ears of Sweet Corn.

 

 

 

 

Mom had been wanting Lobster Tail so I purchased a package of 2 Lobster Tails and Stuffed Clams fresh from the Seafood Department at Kroger. I purchased the Stuffed Clams from the Seafood Department at Kroger yesterday. They are Matlaw Stuffed Clams (Brand) that they carry in the Seafood Case. We have these every so often and love having them! For the Stuffed Clams I preheated the oven on 425 degrees. Lined a small baking sheet with foil and placed the Clams on it. I sprinkled some Sea Salt on them and a drizzle of Lemon Juice. When the oven was ready I baked the Clams until heated through, about 25 minutes. Meaty and seasoned just right, with a side of Louisiana Remoulade Sauce. It’s the perfect dip for all Seafood.

 

 

I bought the Lobster Tails from Kroger Seafood Department yesterday, package of 2. To make the Broiled Lobster Tails I’ll need; 2 lobster tails, 1/2 cup salted butter melted, 1 teaspoon minced garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and 1 large lemon or lemon juice.

 

 

 

 

 

Then to prepare the Lobster; I first turned on the broiler and let it preheat. Next I grabbed some kitchen shears to slice open the lobster tail lengthwise to expose the meat inside. Placed them on a small, ungreased baking sheet that I lined with foil. Then in a small bowl, whisk together melted butter, garlic, salt, and pepper. Drizzled that over the lobster exposed lobster meat.

 

 

 

 

 

Placed the baking sheet 6 inches beneath broiler and let broil until the meat was no longer translucent, about 9 minutes. Watch them closely so not to overcook them. Serve immediately with lemon wedges or squeeze lemon juice over lobster meat just before eating. Then just Enjoy! These came out so good. Fantastic flavor and the lobster meat was tender. Got to have these again, been too long!

 

 

 

 

 

For one side I heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced New Potatoes. I use a lot of Del Monte Vegetable Products, always delicious and store a lot longer than fresh Vegetables. To prepare them I emptied the can into a small sauce pan. Heated it on medium heat until heated through.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For another side dish I boiled some Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn. It’s frozen Mini Ears of Sweet Corn and you just boil for 10 minutes and you have some of the Sweetest Corn you can find! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Matlaw’s Stuffed Clams
Set Sail for Something Different for Dinner Tonight!

It’s the dreaded question, “What’s for dinner tonight?” Instead of reaching for another steak, pork chop, or that old standby, chicken nuggets for the kids, set sail for something different: a bounty of delicious options from under the sea.

With families today looking for healthier and more flavorful meal options than ever before, seafood lovers young and old will enjoy discovering new items in the frozen seafood section that are convenient, affordable and tasty. That’s why, Matlaw’s, creator of America’s #1 Seafood Appetizer, has introduced a full line of products that the whole family will love.

From classic New England Style, Bacon and Cheese, Chorizo or Chili Lime Stuffed Clams served in a natural clam shell; to Crispy Original, Barbecue, or Coconut Popcorn Shrimp; and Southwest Tortilla Breaded Cod, Jalapeño Breaded Cod, or Pubstyle Battered Cod, these exciting new flavor combinations are sure to have family members asking for more every night of the week.

For many families the Stuffed Clams have become a favorite. Each natural clamshell is filled with a delectable matlawsbreadcrumb stuffing with clams, green and red peppers, and delicate spices, and individually frozen to insure freshness and flavor. They’re great on the grill and so easy to prepare. Instead of turning on the oven and heating up the kitchen, simply wrap in a foil “boat” and place right on the grill on medium heat for 25 minutes. Pair with a crunchy green salad and top with butter and lemon, (or a dash of hot sauce for the truly adventurous), is all it takes to satisfy the family.

With Matlaw’s it couldn’t be easier to serve up a seafood feast at dinner time, lunch time or party time too. Discover even more recipes, tasty food pairing suggestions, menu recommendations, special offers, coupons and more at http://www.Matlaws.com/setsail.com

Clam up……………………..

The most effective way to get rid of sand and grit from clams is to soak them in water with a bit of cornmeal stirred in. It irritates the clams, and they expel the sand while trying to eliminate the cornmeal.

We love Clam Chowder……………..

When making Clam Chowder; Always add clams to your chowder during the last 15-20 minutes of cooking. If added too early, clams can become either tough or too soft.
