- Food-grade ice – this one’s fancy
- 1 Queensland Tropical Rock Lobster
- 2 Moreton Bay Bugs
- 8 Queensland King Prawns
- 8 Queensland Tiger Prawns
- 150g Queensland Spanner Crab meat
- 3 lemons
- 2 limes
- Tartare sauce
- Asian dressing
- Sweet chilli and lime sauce
How to make
Place ice on a one or two large plates or and arrange seafood on top. We recommend starting with the big ticket items like the Queensland Tropical Rock Lobster and Moreton Bay Bugs, then using the Queensland King and Tiger Prawns to fill any remaining spaces. If you’re using picked Spanner Crab meat it’s a good idea to place it in a bowl and fan your prawns coming out around it.
Cut 2 lemons and 2 limes in half. Heat a large frying pan or grill pan over high heat and sear the lemon and lime halves, cut-side down, for 2-3 minutes until juicy and caramelised. Cut the remaining lemon into wedges and place around the seafood. Serve with tartare, Asian dressing, sweet chilli and lime sauce – all are available straight off the supo shelf so you can sit back and enjoy!
