Kerrys Food Thymes

It has been a while since I made this, and I have been craving it lately, so let’s do this!

Cook / Prep Time – about an hour

Servings – 2 – 3

Ingredients:

  • 2 – 6 oz lobster tails
  • 1 qt vegetable stock
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 celery rib
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 1 medium potato
  • 2 large shallots
  • 2 green onions
  • 1 lg clove garlic
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp thyme leaves
  • 1/4 tsp ground red pepper
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp ap flour

Add the vegetable stock, water and wine to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the salt, pepper and thyme leaves. Add the lobster tails and cook for five minutes. Remove them, let them cool and chop the lobster meat and place it in the refrigerator. Place the lobster shells back in the stock and simmer while cleaning the vegetables.

Melt the butter in a Dutch oven on low heat. Clean, wash and dice all of the vegetables, keeping the green onions separate (for garnish). Place the vegetable scraps into the stock pot with the lobster shells. Add the chopped vegetables to the Dutch oven with the butter and cook on low heat until the vegetables soften. Add the tomato paste to the vegetables and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.

Add the flour to the vegetables, continuing to stir for another 5 minutes. using a sieve, pour the hot lobster stock into the vegetables and let it simmer for 5 more minutes while stirring.

Using an immersion blender, purée the vegetables and stock together. Add the heavy cream and chopped lobster meat and return to low heat and simmer for 5 more minutes. Remove from heat and serve immediately. Garnish with the chopped green onions. That’s it! I served it with some toasted sourdough bread I made yesterday.

Enjoy!

Fortunately, our area was not hit but just a few short miles away, many families lost their homes and many are still without power. Recovery is expected to take months, or even years.
