I used to know a fish monger who called lobster the cockroaches of the sea. Now that was his personal opinion and I gave him that. Obviously he never had one pan roasted in foamy brown butter with a generous splash of Jameson whiskey and another of cream.

This classic Irish dish is great for the month of March. Always buy your lobsters live and personally I enjoy a smaller, younger crustacean. I feel the meat is sweeter and more tender.

The Red Biddy from Biddy Early Brewery in Ireland is the perfect brew for a rich seafood dish like this. It is sweet and light, for an Irish beer. The red is brewed with chocolate, crystal malts and bog myrtle from the mountains instead of hops for flavor

Smoked Sausage and Potato Hash

This is a great dish on its on. Crispy potatoes and delicious smoked sausage with onion and thyme is about as good as it gets. I like to eat it with eggs or just on its own. There is little you need to add to make this dish great. A tall cold beer is about the only addition this dish deserves. I prefer a nice Bass Ale, a deep Guinness or a Beamish.

Stewed Chicken Legs with Jalapeno and Lime

This is a great Latin inspired stew for a cold February night. This dish will not only create meltingly tender chicken legs but it will also produce a great chicken stock that can be eaten with your meal or saved for a later date. I would suggest a Corona Extra to match up well with the lime or even a Landshark Caribbean Lager.

Easier Valentines Day Carpetbagger Steak

One of the sexiest meals that can be shared has to be that of a large cut of filet mignon stuffed with raw oysters and pan seared to the desired temperature. Though the name carpetbagger is not nearly as attractive as the dish itself I think your valentine will enjoy it.

There is a lot of thought that has to go into this dish what with creating a pocket in your meat for the delicious briny oysters as well as tyeing the steak up and cooking it without spilling the bi valves out.

I figured I would create a simpler and even cheaper way to enjoy this delicacy. It starts with delicious panko and herb crusted oysters that are sandwiched between medallions of beef filet that have been basted with beer and Worcestershire sauce.

Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Gravy

This is a great way to celebrate Fat Tuesday for breakfast, lunch or dinner. A spicy shrimp and andouille gravy that definitely deserves a nice cold beer as well as warm flaky biscuits. Abita is a brewery out of Louisiana and they make a great seasonal brew call Abita Bock.
