How big is that lobster,.
How big a knob of butter did you put on it and how long did u have it in the oven
I would leave off the breadcrumbs as well.

When I 1st come to Australia 40 years ago, I could not believe how much seafood was deep fried, and or crummed etc.
From what I had seen of Aus on the TV it was all cooked fresh

Personally I still think that some of the UK fish is much tastier than a lot of the Aus fish.
My favorite fish from the UK was Sole (flat fish) and my fav is Rock Salmon, which is similar to a normal Salmon but white flesh.
Every time I go back to the UK it is the 1st fish I eat.

In Thailand (especially Samui), we go to the beach and have Tuna, Swordfish Steaks or Mackeral (around 300-400g) cooked on the coals on the beach.
Cannot beat it

The lobsters were about 1.5lbs each

Decent amount of butter and garlic but not over the the top

Yeah I didn't love the breadcrums on it

But I do love what we called "broiled" fish in Boston

Baked with breadcrumbs and butter
The fish has more natural juices so does well breaded
The lobster was too dry


I make really good grilled seafood also
Olive oil, paprika, Chilli pepper
Very easy and comes out great

That's my fav here in Oz Chels.

Are you saying the UK variety is tastier than ours here? if so it might be a reason to visit next time i go to Europe instead of totally avoiding the place like my last trip over that way 😁

depends on the restaurants you go to smartarse .. a lot of places in Spain only do tapas for two or three people and not just for one

that's why I'm happy that I found this place
