  1. Very easy to make. I used loganstinos instead of full lobsters. I am planning on using this recipe again. Also, I used full whipping cream and more pepper. Can't tell you about leftovers, there weren't any leftover.
  2. YUM!! My favotite,--lobster, in a wonderful creamy sauce. I served this over rice, and had a spinach salad on the side. I'm going to try this recipe using shrimp also, it really is easy to do!
  3. Absolutely wonderful...I tried this twice once exactly as written and it was perfect. The consistency of the sauce(which I think is the hardest thing to get right in this type of recipe) was perfect...even picky hubby said it was perfect. Second time - I didn't have lobster so I thawed some raw extra large shrimp and used a can of tiny shrimp that I rinsed and patted dry. The shrimp newburg with ths recipe is to die for.
  4. Awsome recipe - I added a shake or two of nutmeg, used cognac instead of sherry (and doubled it) - used 150z pre packaged lobster, simmered the sauce with the lobster for about 5 minutes over med/medhigh heat to reduce - served over angel hair pasta - wow!! easy, fast and GREAT
  5. Absolutely delicious. Added some fresh garlic powder and parmesan cheese. Poured over rosemary biscuits. Paired with caeser salad and white wine. So good. Had company over and made a double batch. They were very pleased. Amazing.


  1. OMG! DELICIOUS! Celebrating Valentine’s Day early made this and will certainly make again! I was out of milk so I used cream DELICIOUS and did add fresh lemon juice at the end! I loved it my husband loved it sauce was so good had to make pasta to scoop up that delicious sauce! I did serve on top of sliced French bread! Yum yummy!
