DIRECTIONS

  • Finely chop the shrimp or lobster meat and marinate 30 minutes in 2 T. of sherry and the thyme.
  • Saute onions in butter until soft.
  • Add shrimp or lobster meat and cook over a low heat for 3 to 5 minutes.
  • In a separate bowl, combine tomato soup and milk and blend mushroom soup with cream. Combine the two soup mixtures with the shrimp-lobster sautee.
  • Simmer over low heat for 3-5 minutes.
  • Add more sherry to taste.
  • Cool, then mix in blender until thick and smooth.
  • To serve, reheat in a double boiler.
  • Add more sherry to taste and garnish with chopped parsley.
  • NOTE: I boiled 2 lobster tails in salted water for approximately 5 minutes. Then, I let them cool and removed the meat.
