    Default REC Lobster Newburg


    My son had four lobsters given to him from one of his suppliers, so we
    thought we'd give this recipe a try, he said he'd cook. Not sure what
    I should make for desert.



    MMMMM----- Recipe via Meal-Master (tm) v8.06

    Title: Gourmet's Lobster Newburg
    Categories: Fish/sea, Casseroles
    Yield: 6 servings

    3 Lobsters, about 1-1/2 lb. each
    1/4 c Unsalted butter
    7 tsp Medium dry sherry
    10 tsp Brandy
    1 1/2 c Heavy cream
    1/4 ts Nutmeg
    Cayenne pepper
    4 lg Egg yolks, well beaten
    Toast points as an accompaniment

    Into a large kettle of vigorously boiling salted water, plunge the
    lobsters, head first, and boil them, covered, for 8 minutes from the
    time the water returns to a boil.
    Transfer lobsters to a cutting board and allow them to cool.
    Break off claws at the body, and crack them.
    Remove claw meat and cut it into 1/2-inch pieces.
    Halve the lobsters lengthwise along the undersides and remove meat
    from the tails.
    Cut into 1/2-inch pieces. In a heavy saucepan, cook the lobster meat
    in the butter over moderate heat, stirring occasionally for 2 minutes.
    Add 6 tsp of Sherry and 3 tsp brandy, and cook the mixture, stirring
    for 2 minutes.
    Transfer lobster meat to a bowl. Add the cream to the Sherry mixture
    and boil until it is reduced to about 1 cup. Reduce heat to low and
    stir
    in the remaining Sherry and brandy, nutmeg, cayenne, and salt to
    taste.
    Whisk in the yolks. Cook the mixture, whisking constantly, until it
    registers
    140f on a cooking thermometer. Cook, whisking, for 3 more minutes.
    Stir in lobster meat and serve over the toast points.

    I had a similar recipe that called for a frozen can of lobster meat. We
    used to make it occasionally, but I have not sen frozen cans of lobster
    in a years.

    Sounds good, though I'd highly recommend making a lobster stock to enhance
    the flavor of the sauce. Take shells and rest of the skeleton and simmer in
    a small saucepan for 45 minutes. Drain, and reduce your stock to one third
    of volume. Add a portion of this to your sauce, flavoring to taste. Four
    yolks is what we would have used in the pre cholesterol fear days[1965]. You
    can make a very decent newberg sauce with half as many eggs, and with a bit
    of roux to thicken to taste.

    This recipe for lobster bisque is lower in fats and probabl way more
    delicious.

    Although I tend to think that just plain lobster with butter is the best,
    this does sound delicious (as long as the lobster isn't overcooked...).

    But do make sure that you hack up the bodies and shells and add them to fish
    frames to make stock! A good fish stock with lobster is fabulous in shrimp
    or crayfish etouffee, fish chowder, bouillabaise, et al. You can also make
    straight lobster stock, but I think a combination tastes better.

    If you don't have time or access to fish frames and trimmings now, put them
    in a plastic bag and throw them in the freezer for later. (With your shrimp
    shells. <G> ) Or gift them to a friend who will use them.
