Red Lobsters


It's that festive season again.  Sydneysiders consume lots of seafood during Christmas/New Year time.  Unfortunately, some seafood will be expensive and it's all depending on the fishermen recent catches.

I'm don't like last minute rush.  The seafood is already in my freezer and I'll be cooking all seafood dishes ~ tiger prawns, calamari sofrito style, tomyam with fish tofu and belachan noodles.

What will you be having?

Awesome color! Merry Christmas, Ai Shiang!

In our current rainy weather, seafood is pricier than usual.

Hey, Word verification has learned English - grabless. LOL!

Mei Teng said...

Wow...loads of lobsters! :)

I don't consume lots of seafood during Christmas or any other celebration. I just eat them whenever I feel like having them. I love crabs.

foongpc said...

Wow! Look at those lobsters!!

Filip Demuinck said...

Nice sight

Ai Shiang said...

Tekkaus,
Same to you too!

Happysurfer,
Oh yeah! rainy season over there now, that's right. We used to have flood during this season many years ago. Haha! wanna grab some?

Mei Teng,
I think in malaysia, people don't particularly go for seafood but all sort of dishes like duck, chicken, beef all on one table, don't they?

Foongpc,
Yeah, unfortunately they are expensive :)

Filip,
Thank you for your kind comment.

Wow, so many lobsters! They are expensive here, even those near the seaside towns.

Shingo T said...

I will be having McDonalds for Christmas, haha!

Enjoy your red lobsters, bet you must be a great cook, Ai Shiang!

Wenny Yap said...

Oooooo ... those lobsters reminds me of the seafood lunch I had at the Sydney market a long time ago. Wish I could be there again soon.

Anyway, your planned X'mas dishes are making me hungry right now! Merry Christmas!!!

Btw, like the new look too.

Autumn Belle,
They're not so cheap either in metro area. The cheapest ones I bought were in New Zealand. It had a stall set up by the fisherman himself, only Nz$20 each.

ShingoT,
Not that "cham"(hokkien) that you need to eat McDonalds? But if you haven't had McDonalds for the whole year, it still would be fun.
I did cooking and baking since I was 9 or 10 (to help out at home), so I have some experiences :o) Merry Christmas & Happy 2011 to you!

Wenny,
Sydney Fish market is a must to visit. But their prices are a bit expensive at times. Best to buy from paddy's market. Merry Christmas!!

I can't wait for my X'mas dinner...

Merry Christmas!!

Luckily most of my family members are in the market biz, so getting raw food is not a problem, even during new year.

We exchange chicken (dad once a driver for a chicken market) with fish (most of my relatives are either in vege or fish biz). :D

I always must have lobak for CNY. and my third and fourth aunt make the best lobak!

gina said...

eh.. tersilap.. not lobak, bak kien! haha!

Bananazஇ said...

Wow so red! Auspicious color for CNY celebration too..Merry Xmas. tQ

Horsoon said...

What an awesome Big Red Shot!

Well I'm not really a 'food person'... so there's nothing special during the holiday season as far as food is concern :)

No Body said...

Ai Shiang said...

Rafael,
Enjoy yourself and Merry Xmas!

Gina,
Haha! That makes me crack! The "tersilap" part :)

Bananazஇ
Cooked lobsters that's why so red.

Horsoon,
No food? Perhaps holiday season is the best time to shoot more pics?

Hui Ming,
Belachan noodles is like sambal olek belachan. Not too difficult to cook. If my dishes turn out good looking I shall post them :o)

lechua said...

wow red juicy lobsters

Ayie said...

hmmmm those are succulent seafood!

Nabeel's Cosmos said...

that's a nice shot ... but i always feel sad for the lobsters ... not because they are a meal for someone but because how their dead bodies are showcased. I wouldn't want it any other way from a consumer's perspective but different story from the lobster's perspective.
