Lobster Chowda

Lobster Chowder at the Harvard Club of Boston

My hubby and I were in Boston for a wedding that was held at the Harvard Club of Boston. We were served lobster chowder as a first course. The soup was creamy and the lobster meat was plentiful. Although it tasted a bit like clam chowder to me, the soup was very tasty.

INGREDIENTS (4 servings)

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 potatoes, diced
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups lobster meat, cut up
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup light cream
  • 1/4 cup butter

In deep saucepan, saute onion in 2 tablespoons of butter until tender, about 5 minutes. Add potatoes and water. Cover and simmer 10 to 12 minutes or until potatoes are almost tender.

Add remaining ingredients, lobster meat, salt, pepper, milk, cream and 1/4 cup butter, and let it simmer on low (do not boil), for about 10 more minutes until the soup is heated through.
