Warm Lobster Dip

Freshly steamed lobster gives this decadent, creamy dip unparalleled flavour and the best texture; it's a splurge compared to frozen canned lobster, but it's totally worth it. Most fish counters will steam a lobster to order in about 15 minutes—saving you time and the fuss of cooking it at home. Serve the dip with warm sliced bread and crackers.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 leek (white and light green parts only), thinly sliced

Reduce heat and simmer, whisking, until sauce is thick enough to coat back of spoon, about 4 minutes. Whisk in lobster, half of the Gruy?re cheese, the lemon juice and sherry; cook, stirring often, until lobster is heated through.

Scrape into 2-cup (500 mL) baking dish; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Broiluntil golden and bubbly, about 4 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
