Langostino Stew

Recipe by: Cynthia C. from Milton

I made this up after failing to find a suitable heart healthy recipe for a stew or bisque base to make with langostinos or lobster meat. It took a few tries to get it right. Prepared this way, my husband loves it. It have made it with shrimp too.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1 medium red potato diced into1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons spicy cocktail sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4-5 dashes hot-shot (red and black pepper blend)
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons cognac
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 8 ounces langostinos (pre-cooked) (may also use lobster or shrimp)
  • 1 1/2 cups skim milk
  • 1 tablespoon parsley

Directions

  • In a sauce pan, sauté the onions, potatoes, celery, and garlic in the butter until onions are clear.
  • Add the chicken broth, cocktail sauce, Worcestershire sauce and spices, and bring to a boil.
  • Simmer until the potatoes are soft .
  • In a small bowl, whisk the flour in the cognac.
  • Add it to the simmering mixture, along with the langostinos.
  • Add the milk and the parsley, and continue slightly simmering on low heat, until all is heated through.
  • Add more black pepper to taste if desired.
