Re: Maine stories
We were further up the coast on this trip. In Portland, there is a place called Street and Company. We had Lobster Diavalo for two there a few years ago. Best I've ever had.
Downeast, where we were this time, we loved the Lobster Saute at Ables Lobster Pound at the top of Sommes Sound. Also had a great Lobster Thermador at the Boathouse Bistro in BoothBay. I've picked so many steamed lobsters, it doesn't do much for me. I make my owner lobster salad, because I believe it should be made simply. Lobster meat, salt, pepper, just enough mayo to hold it together and lime juice. No celery, no herbs, no bacon, nothing else, which many places try to add to be different.
What I really meant to do was buy a couple of live bugs and cook them on the boat BBQ. Never got to it this time. You have to have the stomach to cut them in half, lengthwise, while they are alive. Put on the boat grill, flesh down for a couple of mins. Then turn over and put butter and whatever herbs or spices you like in the shells and cook for another 4 or 5 mins. I like garlic and parsley butter and enough to nearly fill the shells.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
