Lobster stew in New Brunswick style
Ingredients for the lobster stew
2 Hummer (1 each)
125 ml of melted butter
1 / 4 TL peppers
about 300 ml of light cream or condensed milk
Preparation of the lobster stew
And the preparation is easy, if you know how it works:
The lobsters are cooked for 15 minutes. Then cut them in a shallow pan and catch the juice. Then you remove the roe (the eggs) and the lobster meat. How to get the whole lobster meat, you can read here. Squeeze out the juice and meat from the legs and tail ends. Mix the lobster, juice and roe with the melted butter until each piece of meat is covered with butter. This will be shut down for about 4 hours.
Then you heat the milk or cream to the boiling point and add the buttered lobster meat and the juice. It is seasoned with paprika, which gives the dish an intense color. If necessary, you can add salt, although in most cases the butter and salty juice are sufficient. When the mixture has cooled, put it in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours. Before serving, heat them up again and add a few tablespoons of sherry, depending on your taste. The whole thing makes six servings.
Preparation time: approx. 40 minutes
