DIRECTIONS

  • Melt butter and olive oil in a stock pot over medium heat; add celery, garlic, onions, shallots, salt, and cayenne pepper.
  • Cook and stir for 5 minutes to release juices and soften vegetables - make sure garlic doesn't brown or the flavor may be bitter.
  • In a blender, add Marsala wine, lobster base, and 1 cup of the water; and blend.
  • Add the sauteed vegetables to the blender and puree until smooth.
  • Pour blender contents back into stock pot, and add remaining 2 1/2 cups water, bay leaves, and corn.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Add the cream and half and half, and simmer for 20-30 minutes - try to keep it from boiling; you want a gentle simmer.
  • Add green onions and lobster/crab meat, and simmer for 10 more minutes.
  • Serve with oyster crackers and enjoy.
  • I will put this in a 6 quart crock pot to bring it to soup parties or potlucks.
