Lobster Guac Cocktail




Capt. Pete Rapps

Looking for something different to do with your Florida Spiny Lobster tails this season? Yeah, it’s hard to beat grilled tails drenched in seasoned butter, but you are going to need an appetizer to wash down those cool bevies while the tails are cooking right? Let me show you a quick and easy way to make a cool and fresh appetizer that will knock your guest’s sombreros off.

First off, get your tails split and seasoned up. Take a large knife and split the tops of the tails and crack them wide open. Now coat the Lobster meat with olive oil and some Captain Rapps’ Marco Rico Seasoning. Grill them meat side up on medium for about 10 minutes, then flip them over for about 3-4 minutes to get a little char on the meat and they are done.

After they cool for a few minutes, remove the meat from the shell and chop it up into small pieces. Put it in a bowl and add olive

oil, garlic, onion, lime juice, teriyaki sauce, and Captain Rapps’ Marco Rico Seasoning. Put in fridge and let marinate for about 10-15 minutes. Now cut up 2 Hass Avocados and mix in with marinated lobster mixture. Season with more Captain Rapps’ Marco Rico Seasoning to taste. Serve in Margarita glasses with tortilla chips.
