    Lobster and Corn Chowder

    Ingredients
    • 3 (1 1/2-pound) cooked lobsters, cracked and split
    • 3-4 ears corn
    For the stock:
    • 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter
    • 1 cup chopped yellow onion
    • 1/4 cup sherry
    • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
    • 4 cups whole milk
    • 2 cups heavy cream
    • 1 cup dry white wine
    For the soup:
    • 1 tablespoon good olive oil
    • 1/4 pound bacon, large-diced
    • 2 cups large-diced unpeeled gold or red potatoes
    • 1 1/2 cups chopped yellow onions
    • 2 cups diced celery
    • 1 tablespoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
    • 1/4 cup sherry
    • ¼ to ½ stick of butter, depending upon your current cholesterol levels <smiling> - If you’ve been going to the gym, well, you know… If you haven’t, well, get there, the butter really makes this dish rock…
    Directions
    In a large stock pot, add butter and olive oil and sauté lobster enough to be able to remove the meat. Remove the meat and dice into bit size pieces and place them in a covered bowl. Save the shells of the lobster for the next steps and all the juices that collect. Cut the corn kernels from the cobs and set aside, reserving the cobs separately. We usually leave the kernels on one ear and cut it into small chunks for presentation.
    For the stock, over a medium heat, melt some butter in a stockpot large enough to hold all the lobster shells and corncobs. Add lobster shells their juices, and corn cobs and bring to a simmer and stir for 2-3 min. Add the onion and cook until translucent but not browned, stirring occasionally. Add sherry and paprika and cook for 1 minute. Add the milk, cream, wine. Partially cover the pot and simmer the stock over the lowest heat for 30 minutes.
    For the Soup, in another stockpot heat the oil and cook the bacon for 4 to 5 minutes over medium-low heat, until browned and crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and reserve. Add some butter, the potatoes, onions, celery, corn kernels, salt, and pepper to the same pot and sauté for 5 minutes.
    Combining the ingredients - When the stock is ready, remove the lobster shells and the corn cobs and discard. Carefully pour the stock into the pot with the potatoes and corn (usually a larger / deeper pot). Simmer over low heat for 15 minutes, until the potatoes are tender. Then add the cooked lobster, the chives and sherry and salt to taste. Simmer for 3-5 being careful to not overcook the already cooked lobster.
