If you think lobster is great in the shell, wait until you taste it in this glorious savory pie! This easy recipe for lobster pot pie is seafood heaven.


  • 10 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 cups clam juice
  • 1/4 cup sherry
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 lobsters, cooked, shelled and meat cut into chunks
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 cups soft french bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Melt 4 tablespoons butter in a saucepan and add flour, whisking until smooth. Gradually whisk in the clam juice until the sauce is smooth and thickened, about 5 minutes or so.
  3. Add sherry and cream and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and add lobster just enough to warm it up. Taste sauce and add salt and pepper to taste. Using slotted spoon, transfer lobster to oven-proof casserole and spoon just enough sauce over to cover the lobster without making it too soupy.
  4. Melt the remaining butter.  Put bread crumbs, parsley and cheese in mixing bowl, pour melted butter over top and mix thoroughly. Spread crumbs over lobster.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes, or until crumbs are golden. Serve immediately. Remember why you love lobster so dang much.
