   Pavlovian response just reading the title! 

   The only improvement IMHO would be if they had used "yeller" grits instead of white but that is definitely a personal preference and I would not turn down that plate in your picture. digin_2 

   I can't help it that Sawguy has been stranded up in the glaciated north so long doesn't recognize good eating when he sees it.

Since I've never had grits, I'll refrain from commenting on them but I sure miss getting Maine shrimp. The fishery has been closed for 5 years now and we don't know when it will re-open. 

Maine shrimp are the sweetest tasting shrimp I've ever had!

I am no crustacean expert, but I wouldn't eat that lobster.  I think it must have been caught right next to the nuclear power plant.  I have consumed at least a couple, three hundred lobsters in my life, never seen one that looked like that.

Ricker, that be a fresh Florida warm water lobster caught just past the 7 Mile Bridge below Marathon. No nuclear plant anywhere near here. They are sweeter and slightly firmer than the northern cold water variety with claws. These don't have claws but real long antennae. They are called spiney lobsters for a reason. Most of them here go 1 1/2 lbs or so. I grill mine mostly.

   We usually rolled it in cornmeal with salt and pepper and fried it. Should be served with fresh field peas and cornbread and a pork chop or a little pork stew cooked with the beans complements the meals just fine. I have eaten it cooked in batter and actually prefer it that way but I don't know how my old mentor made the batter. Cornmeal is much easier. If you are going to freeze some you can go ahead and meal it and freeze if you like. You can do the same thing with your Catalpa worms for fish bait but don't get the two mixed up come meal time. steve_smiley

Take your okra pods and cut them into quarter inch rounds.  Take an egg and add a tablespoon of half and half or cream or even milk.  Beat the egg until homogeneous.  Take a big ziploc bag and add House Autry chicken breader to it and put about a handful of okra in the bag, shake till coated.  Then add the coated okra to a bowl with the egg mixture and stir it around until the okra is coated with the egg mixture.  Put that okra back in the House Autry bag and shake again.  Set this double coated okra on wax paper or foil or a baking sheet.  Repeat until all the okra has been coated, egged, and coated again.  Get your oil hot at 350 degrees and fry until golden brown.  

The egg mixture makes the breader stick like a tick to the okra and when you fry the okra, the oil stays clean and does not burn from particles of breading.  You will be amazed by how clean the oil stays.  So very good!  The House Autry breader is perfectly seasoned so you do not need to add salt after frying.

My favorite by far is to take young okra pods, just a couple of inch's long, and pan fry whole until blackened just a bit on each side.  Don't crowd them, got to keep turning them.  No drench...no cornmeal, super easy and just great taste.

Much better than fried as you get more okra and less fried food taste, they don't get slimy either.
