  • * 2 tbsp. chopped green onions
  • * 4 lemon wedges
  • Lobster Sauce
  • * 1 live Maine lobster, 1 ¼ pound
  • * 1 quart heavy whipping cream
  • * 1 medium onion, diced
  • * 2 stalks celery, diced

  • * ½ cup cream sherry
  • * 1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves, stem removed
  • * Salt and fresh-ground black pepper
  • * 1/4 Tsp garlic

Directions

  • Lobster Sauce
  • 1. Prepare lobster by cutting in half lengthwise through the head and body first.
  • Remove tail halves, and claw and knuckle sections.
  • These are the sections with the meat for the sauce.
  • Cut the body into two-inch pieces.
  • 2. In a two-quart stock pot heat the butter over medium heat.
  • Add all diced vegetables, lobster, peppercorns, bay leaf, and thyme.
  • Cook on medium to medium-high heat, stirring continually for ten minutes or until the lobster shells start to turn red.
  • Remove just the lobster pieces that contain meat and let cool for ten minutes.
  • 3. Stir in flour and cook on medium heat, stirring continually for another 5 minutes.
  • 4. Deglaze pan with sherry, then add cream.
  • 5. Remove lobster meat from the shell, and set aside.
  • Place leftover shells back into the lobster cream.
  • Let reduce on low heat to desired consistency. (We suggest thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.)
  • 6. Cut lobster meat into half-inch chunks.
  • 7. Strain lobster sauce into a smaller pot and discard shell/vegetable mixture.
  • 8. Stir in lobster meat and garlic and season sauce to taste with salt and pepper just before serving.
  • Grilled Salmon
  • 1. Lightly brush both sides of fillets with olive oil and season with McCormick's Season All.
  • 2. Pre-heat grill on medium-high heat and place salmon on, skin-side up. Grill for 4-5 minutes until well marked.
  • 3. Turn fish over and continue grilling another 5-6 minutes or until your fresh fish preference is reached.
