Traditional Maine Lobster Stew

print recipe


  • 1 pound of Maine Lobster Meat, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1/4 pound butter
  • 1/2 gallon half and half
  • 1/2 pint heavy cream


Melt butter in the bottom of a large pot over medium heat. Add the lobster meat, then add 4 tablespoons of water and sauté until the butter turns slightly red (about 3-5 minutes). Slowly add the half and half to the pot, stirring constantly. Add heavy cream to the pot. Allow the stew to heat up (do not boil) then remove it from the heat and cool it to room temperature.

Refrigerate overnight in order to allow the stew's flavor to deepen. Reheat and serve with oyster crackers. Serves 4.
