September 25 is...National Crab Newburg Day! Newburg or Newberg is very rich sauce of butter, cream, egg yolks, cognac, sherry, cayenne pepper and nutmeg, to which cooked shellfish—crab, lobster, scallops, shrimp—is added, alone or in combination. It can also be called creamed seafood sauce; in fact, in French, the dish Lobster Newburg is called homard sauté à la crème (lobster sautéed in cream).
Absolutely decadent Maine Lobster Stew. Tons of fresh lobster meat in a lobster stock with sherry and cream. Comforting yet elegant - perfect for entertaining! http://www.maryellenscookingcreations.com
