Lobster Pie for LandLubbers

Lobster Pie is one of  the most cherished seafood dishes in New England. For the unitiated landlubbers and out-of-towners, a traditional lobster pie is a simple, decadent dish made with fresh picked lobster meat baked under a buttery crust of cracker crumbs.

The best lobster pie starts with fresh lobster meat. We suggest par cooked lobster meat so your lobster pie meat bakes up tender, not tough. Purchase four to six 1 1/4 lb. live lobsters. Gently steam your lobsters for about 4-6 minutes (your cooking your lobsters only half way) and shuck the lobster meat. If you have no access to live lobster, you can use high quality frozen lobster meat.

Lobster Pie Ingredients

1 lb. par boiled lobster meat
½ cup Ritz crackers crushed
1 tablespoon dry sherry
¼ cup Oyster crackers, coarsely crushed
4 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted and extra for the topping
½ tsp black pepper
½ Tbsp parsley

How to Make a Traditional Lobster Pie

1. Mix Ritz and oyster crackers together.
2. Melt butter and add black pepper and sherry.
4. Blend this mixture well with the crackers.
5. Place lobster in a casserole dish and top with cracker mixture.
6. Drizzle remaining butter on top and bake at 350º F for 20-25 minutes.
