A year has ended.
Another has arrived all fresh with resolutions and expectations.
It’s the time of the year that calls for an extra special meal
shared with special guests.
A very rich and very easy one-pot supper that I created
that has brought back memories of places I’ve lived where lobster
was served as a traditional New Year’s celebration.
LOBSTER and PAN-ROASTED CORN CHOWDER
what you will need
2 tbsp butter
3/4 cup corn cut from the cob
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup celery
1/2 cup chopped red pepper
2 cups potatoes, cut into 1″ pieces
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper, with more to garnish
1 1/2 cups chicken stock + any juices reserved from lobster
generous pinch of Hot Old Bay seasoning
(in a pinch, haha, if you don’t have Old Bay,
try using a pinch of cayenne and a pinch of ground celery seed instead)
4 cups of uncooked lobster meat, cut into bite-sized pieces
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt or sour cream
1-1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup milk
3-4 tbsp chopped fresh parsley to garnish
Combine yogurt with lobster meat.
sprinkle with more Old Bay if you wish.
Health, happiness and safety to all my Galley Peeps.
May 2016 be your best year ever!
