Make With Me- Lobster Coquille

The Kentucky Derby is this weekend. While I've never actually been to Kentucky-for the Derby or otherwise- I grew up watching and loving the Derby. My Aunt Mary was also a fan of the Derby and race horse racing in general. She would even have a Kentucky Derby party, where she would serve Lobster Coquille. In her memory and honour, I am happy to share her recipe.

Lobster Coquille

Ingredients:
  • 4 or 5 lobster tails
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup celery, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 can cream of shrimp soup
  • 1/3 cup table cream
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry
  • 1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup old cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

To Make:
  • Cook and cut lobster meat
  • Saute onions, garlic, celery and mushrooms until tender but not brown
  • Stir in soup
  • Gradually blend in cream, sherry, parsley and crumbs
  • Add lobster
  • Bring mixture to a boil, stir constantly
  • Spoon into baking shells or individual casseroles
