    Directions:

    Cut lobster tail in half lengthwise.

    In a stock pot on medium heat, melt half the butter, add the scallions and onion and cook for 5 minutes, until soft.

    Add the carrot and cook for 2 minutes.

    Add the lobster tail halves, fish stock, parsley, bay leaf, peppercorns, and the water.

    Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Be sure to skim foam from surface regularly.

    Remove the lobster from the stock, allow to cool a bit and remove the meat from the shells.

    Set the lobster meat aside, crush the shell and return it to the pan.

    Simmering for further 40 minutes. Strain the stock through a sieve lined with 2 layers of damp muslin or cheesecloth. Strain two times, until stock is clear of any particles or pieces.

    Cut some thin slices from the lobster to use as a garnish and set them aside.

    In a blender, place the remaining lobster meat with a bit of the strained stock, and blend until smooth.

    Mix the flour and remaining butter to a paste.

    Add the pureed lobster to the pot along with the flour paste, tomato puree, sherry, cream, nutmeg and salt and pepper, to taste. Mix well.

    Add the tarragon and the remaining stock and cook, stirring continuously, over high heat until the soup boils and thickens.

    Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

    Season to taste and serve garnished with reserved lobster meat and sprigs of tarragon, as desired.

    Celiac.com 04/25/2014 - I'm a person who appreciates a meal that looks and tastes fancy, but which comes together quickly and easily.
    This recipe blends crème fraîche (fancy sour cream), two kinds of mustard and a few other ingredients to deliver some culinary magic. This easy salmon dish makes for an easy upscale dinner, or an easy way to just kick things up a bit in the kitchen.
    You can make this with regular sour cream in a pinch, but it's good to blend a bit of plain cream into the sour cream, as crème fraîche is less sour than most American sour cream.
    Ingredients:
    4 wild salmon fillets, 6-8 ounces each 1 cu...
