  • About


  • 1 small cooked lobster
  • 1 oz. butter
  • 2 egg yolks


Remove the flesh of the lobster from the body and claws, and cut this into flakes. Cook in the butter for about 5 min. only—no longer as this toughens the lobster meat. Add the beaten egg yolks and cream or white sauce, the seasonings and nutmeg, and heat gently until the mixture thickens. Put on to the rounds of bread and garnish with parsley.
