Ingredients

  • 450g cooked lobster, shredded
  • 250ml chicken stock
  • 1 onion
  • 2 tbsp. butter

  • Salt and pepper
  • Dash of Worcestershire sauce

Directions

  1. Mince the onion. Melt the butter in a large pot and add the onion. Fry until softened and sweet, then stir in the flour. Keep stirring until you have a smooth mixture, cooking for 4-5 minutes. Heat the stock in another saucepan, then gradually whisk into the flour mix until you have a thick, smooth mixture.

  2. Gradually whisk in the milk, but don't let the soup come to the boil. Add the lobster, salt, pepper, Worcestshire sauce, cayenne pepper and paprika and stir. Warm the lobster through, stir in the parsley and serve. The soup should be almost boiling, but not quite.

You could also add a dash of lemon juice to the soup to cut the richness, or you might want to experiment and add a hint of chilli. Recipe serves 4.
