Prep Time: 10 min.
Cook Time: 10 min.
Yield: 4 - 6 servings
4 cups whole milk
2 cups light cream
8 tablespoons butter
2 cups fresh picked lobster meat (1lbs)
Dash of white pepper
1 teaspoon of Kosher salt
Melt the stick of butter in a frying pan. Add the lobster to the pan and sauté on low heat for about 6 minutes. Add a dash of white pepper & Kosher salt then remove from the heat.
Add the milk and cream to a saucepan and cook under low heat until scalded (until tiny bubbles form on the edges of the saucepan but without letting the milk come to a boil). Pour the scalded milk/cream mixture into your saucepan of sautéed lobster. Serve immediately. Can be made a day ahead to enhance the flavor of the stew. Serve with oyster crackers.

It gets mighty cold in Maine come winter, and one of life’s greatest eating pleasures is a piping hot bowl of real Maine lobster stew. It is made with just three simple ingredients - lobster, butter & milk. It does not have a whole bunch of other stuff in it. This is a standard recipe in Maine, especially if you live in a seaport town. Simple seafood stews and chowders are staples in many homes and most restaurants along Maine’s rocky coast. Real Maine lobster stew has been described as “mother’s milk” for DownEast families. It is our ultimate comfort food.
