Are you a seafood fan? If yes, then you must love digging into some delicious seafood items like prawns, shrimps, crabs and lobsters? These crustaceans can be incorporated in any sort of cuisine but if you solely talk about lobsters, don’t you think they taste best when cooked with a few classic recipes like lobster rolls, lobster thermidor, or even a lobster stew? Well, there is another way of cooking these scrumptious oceanic beauties; you can make a pie with it.

Lobster pies are a little high on the fat calories because of the pastry and rich creamy béchamel sauce but the sauce is optional. It does add a brilliant zing to the pie but if you want to make only a lobster pie, you can. The pie is high in protein, but is a slightly rich recipe and therefore only meant for those who are not on a diet. Here’s how you can make a lobster pie for your family.

Ingredients:

2 Maine lobsters, cooked (1.5 pounds each), ¼ of a cup of sherry, 2 tablespoons of butter, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of flour, 3 tablespoons of butter, 2 egg yolks and ¾ of a cup of thin cream.

For the pie topping:

¼ of a teaspoon of paprika, ¼ of a cup of cracker meal, 1 tablespoon of finely crushed potato chips, 2 tablespoons of melted butter, 1 and a ½ teaspoons of Parmesan cheese.

To make the pie first, melt two tablespoons of butter and add sherry to it. Boil the mixture for a minute then add the lobster to it and allow it to stand. Then, add the flour to three tablespoons of butter that you melt. Stir it for a minute till it starts to bubble. To this, slowly add the wine drained from the lobster and the cream. Keep heating this sauce till it is nice and thick. Remove this from the flame. Then, separately, beat the egg yolks. To the yolks add about four tablespoons of the sauce that you have made and stir as you add. Heat this on a double boiler for around three minutes. Make sure the water in the boiler doesn’t boil. After this add the lobster and stir in. Transfer this to a deep pie dish and sprinkle the pie topping over it. Bake this for 10 minutes in a 300 degree oven. Voila! Your Maine lobster pie is ready.

However, if you don’t have time to make the pie at home, you can order it online and have it delivered to your doorstep. Then all have to do is heat it and dig in.
