Alan preparing to cook and eat a rock lobster that was given to us by a friend. Apparently, said lobster was caught in the ocean just off the coast of Kikai. It was big, spiny, and colorful. We've never cooked lobster before, so it was interesting and difficult. We decided to stick w/ eating the tail, steamed. Our Japanese friends recommended we eat it raw, but after looking at it, we just couldn't bring ourselves to do that. I know, we're just NUTS. This is a picture.
