Lobster Thermidor


  • 500gr lobster meat
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. flour
  • 1 cup (250ml) cream
  • 1 tsp. mustard
  • ½ tsp. nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper
  • Dash Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms, sautéed
  • 4 tbsp. (80ml) sherry
  • Parmesan cheese


Make a cream sauce by melting the butter and adding the flour.

Stir until smooth and slowly add the cream and cook for 2 minutes over a gentle heat.

Add the seasonings, mushrooms and lobster.

Put the mixture into 4 or 5 shells and cover with buttered crumbs and cheese and grill them until golden brown.

If whole lobsters are prepared, first bake or grill them, remove from heat and cut into slices. Put a little cream sauce in the shells then the lobster meat, cover with more sauce and top with crumbs and cheese and place under the griller.

Serves 4-6.
