Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, finely chopped
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 4 c. seafood or fish stock
  • 1 1/4 c. dry white wine
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1/2 c. heavy cream
  • 1 lb. cooked lobster meat, chopped
  • Finely chopped chives, for serving

Method

  • In a large, heavy pot over medium heat, heat butter. Add onion, carrots, and celery and cook until soft, about 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, then stir in garlic and tomato paste. Cook until garlic is fragrant and tomato paste coats vegetables, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle over flour and cook, 1 minute more

  • Pour in seafood stock and wine, then stir in bay leaf and thyme. Reduce heat and let simmer until liquid is reduced and flavors meld, stirring occasionally, 30 minutes

  • Remove bay leaf and thyme and purée with an immersion blender until very smooth. Return to medium-low heat and stir in heavy cream and lobster meat, cooking just until warm, about 5 minutes

  • Garnish with chives before serving
