Lobster Stew

Lobster Stew

D. Rattray
An easy and delicious lobster stew, perfect for a special dinner or party. Add a dash of dry sherry to this stew for a little extra flavor.


  • 2 large lobsters, about 4 pounds total, cooked (approximately 4 cups lobster meat)
  • butter
  • 6 cups milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • salt, pepper, and paprika
  • dash dry sherry, as desired, for flavor, optional
  • fresh chopped parsley or green onions for garnish


Remove meat from cooked lobsters. Cut meat into cubes and fry in a generous amount of butter (4 to 6 tablespoons) until very lightly browned (be careful not to burn the butter, or use clarified butter). Heat milk; add to lobster meat and cook slowly for 5 to 10 minutes. Add heavy cream and bring just to the boiling point. Add salt and pepper to taste and a little paprika for color. If desired, stir in a dash of sherry for extra flavor. Garnish with sliced green onions or chopped parsley as desired.

Great, easy Lobster Stew, Member mjwade5

This Lobster Stew was very easy (except for cleaning out the hard shelled lobsters!) and so good. I used a couple cups of water that I boiled the lobster bodies in instead of a couple cups of the milk. Everyone loved it!
