May will soon be here and I will once again be off in search of the “ultimate catch". “Ahh, the sea, she be a callin", it’s what my “Old Pop" would say. A true “lobsterman" he was. Taught me everything I know. In fact, taught me things I don’t think he ever intended to teach me like the fact that if it were not for the “lobstermen" of Maine like myself, my “Old Pop" and my friends down at East Coast Gourmet, it wouldn’t be possible for the rest of the world to enjoy the succulent taste of lobster year round. Yes in deed. I have learned so much. And, in turn, have so much to share like my “Old Pop’s" Lobster Pie Recipe.
Old Pop’s Lobster Pie
4 Lobsters, Boiled or Steamed 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 pound size
1/2 cup bread crumbs-unseasoned
1 cup crushed crackers (butter crackers taste best)
1/2 cup melted butter (no margarine)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 cup minced onion
1/4 cup minced green pepper
5 medium mushrooms, chopped fine
1/4 cup butter, non melted
lemon juice and lemon wedges
Place butter in pan, sauté onion, pepper and mushrooms until tender. Add remaining ingredients for stuffing, mix well (set aside). Shell lobsters and place lobster meat into an 8x11 baking dish. Drizzle fresh lemon juice over lobster and dot generously with butter. Top lobster with stuffing mix and dot with butter. Drizzle with lemon juice and bake in a 400 degree oven for about 15 minutes till lightly browned on top. Garnish with lemon wedges and parsley!
Sounds so darn good, I think I’ll call my friends down at East Coast Gourmet to send me over one of their world famous Lobster Pies, the next best thing to Pop’s!
