What You'll Need:

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup dry sherry or seafood broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 cup chopped, cooked lobster meat (about 1 pound)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
What To Do:
  1. In a soup pot over medium heat, melt butter. Saute onion 1 minute, or until tender. Add flour, stirring until blended. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add milk, whipping cream, sherry, salt, and paprika; bring just to a simmer.
