Lobster Newburg, from www.PremierSystems.Com/recipes|
Google: Bruce Moffitt
This is an exquisite dish. The rich taste of the lobster is enveloped and enhanced by the silky sauce, redolent of eggs, sweet cream and soft sherry. There is a touch of nutmeg, a bit of pimento for color. Some people add a few wild mushrooms, which should be simmered gently in a bit of butter before adding to the sauce at the last moment. Some might choose a gentle shaving of a fresh truffle over the top, just before serving, or maybe a bit of a fine, old Parmisiano.
This recipe is for the meat from the tails of two medium lobsters. The claws and the legs can be served as appetizers, included in the Newburg, or enjoyed by the Chef. This recipe should serve four nicely. Serve with a white wine with a bit of character, or note that this is one of the few truly opulent dishes that an assertive Champagne can properly complement.
