Found this treasure in an OLD Maine cookbook. I always asssumed when I heard Seafood was served with 'freshly drawn butter', it was plain melted butter. This is much less rich than butter. Lobster and clams are rich enough! I adore lobster and clams, but when it's dipped in butter, it adds to much richness for my stomach. This I did not have any problems with. No idea how many this serves

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt half the butter, add flour mixed with seasoning and then gradually add hot water. Boil 5 minutes and remaining butter piece by piece.

I was using this with King Crab - substituted cayenne for pepper to cut the richness a little more. It worked really well.... my only questions this is ONE serving??????? My husband and I used less than half for two lbs of King Crab!
