As to oyster shooters I learned of these back in July while in Annapolis, Md. I love these! I’ve only had one with vodka but next time I get to Annapolis you can bet that I’m going to try the pepper vodka oyster shooter! Boy oh boy, I can’t wait until 10/27 to get there.
My last meal would consist of;
At least a dz if not 2 of fresh shucked oysters with fresh lemon juice, a bit of horseradish or cocktail sauce and Tabasco sauce.
A real hand made, with raw egg and fresh garlic croutons Ceaser Salad
A lb of large steamed shrimp done in Old Bay and beer.
A mess of lg sea scallops, both fried and sauteed in garlic and butter.
A filet, med-rare with apple smoked bacon.
And a chocolate souffle and rich coffee for dessert.
Mayhaw, when we’re not drinkin "swill beer" which I hate, but in cans suitable for the boat or the camper, our beer of choice is Alaskan Amber. But I must admit, I do love a cold Turbo Dog!![:D][:D][:D]
You know, my friends Geoff and Marcy Larsen run a pretty tight ship themselves up there in Alaska (and Seattle). They started about the same exact time as Abita and we grew together for quite a while. Alaskan Amber is one real pleasure in a world full of overpriced and overrated malt beverages.
Turbodog is best described as a light bodied dark beer that is mot very aggressively hopped, but because of dry hopping (hops added to the fermenter when the beer is cold rather than to the kettle when the beer is hot) it has a nice crisp bitterness in the finish. A nice beer. Great with seafood.
I have nothing to do with the brewery at this point, neither does anyone else who helped start it and run it for years, but I am still proud of my work and do still get some pleasure out of seeing Em wave them around on TV every night. In case anyone ever wonders about that, he started doing that on his own. The promotional deal that runs at the end of the show is something that was worked out later. He really does like the stuff. Last night he boiled some shrimp in beer instead of crab boil and of course, he used Abita Amber. (which, incidentally, is very similar to Alaskan Amber, just a tad more on the malty sweet side.
Lone Star, That’s exactly what happens when you have consumed one too many Turbo Dogs…….you’ll spin in a frenzy then fall over. It’s a pretty awesome beer brewed in Abita Springs, LA, and from what I understand, our Raconteur du Jour, noneother than our beloved Mayhaw Man had something to do with the recipe, having been brewmaster at the above forementioned. [:D]
What’s a turbo dog?
It could be a description of my bosses’s Jack Russell Terrier who "works" with us daily. That dog can spin itself into a frenzy like a top in a twister. He sometimes falls over.
Turn me loose in N’awlins and just let me eat everything in sight, washed down with a couple of Turbo Dogs……..sheesh, whadda way to go.[:D]
After some serious thought and prolonged drooling [:p], I think the creator of this debacle has come up with his last meal request.
– Liver pate
– Lobster Bisque
– Caesar Salad
– Bacon wrapped Filet Mignon with Sauce Bernaise
– Baked potato stuffed with everything but the kitchen sink
– Steamed asparagus
– a quart of Butter-Pecan ice cream
I’d be in Heaven before I even got there. (or maybe…[}:)])
Well now I’m thinking of how I might bypass shucking them. Only myself and a few select friends will be dining on these incredible sounding morsels. My husband can’t stand them so trying to get him to shuck me a few dozen might be a difficult task. I’ll come up with something, starting out with a good fresh pint of locally shucked. Hell, maybe I’ll buy some of those little jell-o shot cups, add oysters as you have described and pass a tray! We have many oyster roasts a year, once the oysters have slightly broken free, watch out I’ll shuck for hours!
There’s a variation that I used last Labor Day and will repeat for Christmas taking Fresh Chucked Oysters and allowing them to marinate for at least 60 minutes in a container of Pepper Vodka. Clean the oyster shells and return the marinated (now drunk) Oysters back to their shells for presentation. Prepare the reassembled oysters with lemon and a dash of cocktail sauce. Right before serving take some more pepper vodka and drizzle it over the shells. Serve Ice Cold; like a rich man’s Jell-O shots! Amazing.
I’m in love……….I will try that, and SOON!
Yeah……………..now if I could only do something like "Groundhog Day" where I could have my favorite last meal every day![:D]
Yes indeed, this subject was visited previously.[:I]Could of swore I checked the archives. Sorry about that. It still is interesting though. Food for thought, so to speak![;)]
Has anyone noticed that the ads on this thread are for Gorillas and Dads? What does this say about people condemned on capital charges[:0]
My last meal would be as follows
West Indies Salad (with claw meat, not lump)
Butter Lettuce, grapefruit and Avacado Salad from Joes in Livonia, LA
Charbroiled Oysters from Dragos in Metairie, LA
Trout Bacquet from Eddie’s on Law St. in New Orleans
My Mama’s Squash Casserole
Pecan Pie from Lea’s in Lecompte, LA
Peach Cobbler made by me
Strong, unsweetened ice tea
Community Dark Roast w/whole cream from Mauthe’s Dairy in Folsom, LA
With all of the caffeine, they may have to up the juice in order to put me down[}:)][}:)][;)]
Hopefully, when I get caught I will be "Angola Bound" (apologies to the Neville Bros.) because otherwise I might have some trouble with this menu.[8D]
