Down East Lobster Stew


2 (1 lb) lobsters
½ cup melted butter
¼ tsp. paprika
1½ quart of light cream or homogenized milk


Boil lobsters for 15 minutes. Split lobsters open on a flat pan so as to save the juice. Remove roe (eggs) and all meat, including that from the big claws. Squeeze juice from each small claw. Put meat, juice and roe in a pan with melted butter. Stir so that each piece is buttered. Cover and let stand for about 4 hours.
Heat the cream or milk to just below the scalding point, then add buttered lobster meat and juice, for added color use paprika. If necessary add salt to taste, although in most cases the butter and salty juice should be sufficient.
When the mixture is cool put in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours. Reheat before serving, adding a couple of tablespoons of sherry if desired.
Serves 6.

Lobster Bisque

2 1/2- to 2-pound (6.8- to 9-kg) live lobsters
1 shallot, minced
3 tablespoons (50 mL) olive oil
1/2 cup (125 mL) brandy
1/2 cup (125 mL) white wine
1 CUP (250 mL) mirepoix (celery, carrots and onions) , finely chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
6 parsley sprigs
1 sprig tarragon, chopped
1 bay leaf
1 cup (250 mL) crushed tomatoes (or tomato puree)
1 1/2 quarts (1.4 L) chicken or fish stock
Salt and white pepper to taste
2 tablespoons (25 mL) unsalted butter
3/4 cup (175 mL) flour kneaded together with 1/4 cup (50 mL) unsalted butter
1/2 cup (125 mL) cream
8 1/4inch (6-mm) thick baguette slices, toasted
4 tablespoons (60 mL) sour cream
2 tablespoons (25 mL) minced chives
Stun the lobsters by piercing them through the head with a knife, at the centre point just about a half-inch behind the eyes. Cut the lobsters up as follows: each claw cut in half, arms split; body quartered; tail split in half. (When cutting, place a pan underneath the cutting board, so that any juices that run out of the lobster can be added to the vegetables during the sweating.)
Saute the shallot and the lobster pieces in the oil, sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper, until the shells are bright red (about six minutes). Add the brandy, stand back from the stove and carefully ignite. Allow to cook a minute or so, then extinguish with the white wine. Remove lobster with a slotted spoon, and set aside to cool.
Crack the shells, carefully remove the meat and cut into 1/4inch (6-mm) pieces. Crack all of the lobster shells into one-inch (25-mm) pieces, place in a food processor and pulse into even smaller pieces. Set the meat and shells aside. Add the mirepoix, garlic, parsley, tarragon and bay leaf to the pan, and sweat over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Add the chopped shells, tomatoes, stock, salt and pepper, and simmer very slowly for 30 minutes.
Place some of the hot liquid in a bowl, and beat in the butter and flour paste. Return this paste to the simmering ingredients and blend thoroughly. Simmer another 15 minutes. Strain the bisque through a medium-holed strainer, using the ladle to pound the solids, extracting every last bit of liquid. Return to the pan, add the cream, and adjust seasoning. Add the diced lobster meat, and serve garnished with the baguette slices spread with sour cream and sprinkled with chives.

Bring the potatoes to a boil in salted water and simmer for 20 minutes. Drain, cover and keep warm. Cover the tomatoes with boiling water and set aside for 20 seconds to loosen their skins. Cool under running water and slip off the skins. Halve the tomatoes, discard the seeds, then' cut the flesh into large dice.
To segment the oranges, remove the peel from the top, bottom and sides with a serrated knife. With a small paring knife, loosen the orange segments by cutting between flesh and the membranes. holding the fruit over a small bowl.
Dressing: Measure the thawed orange juice into a glass bowl and set it over a saucepan containing one inch of simmering water. Heat the juice for one minute, remove from the heat, then whisk in the butter, a little at a time, until the dressing reaches a coating consistency. Season to taste with salt and a pinch of cayenne pepper, cover and keep warm.
