Luscious Lobster Tail Soup Recipe

If you feel like making something with seafood, but you are unsure exactly what to make, how about combining a selection of seafood instead of just using one kind? This recipe features a mixture of ocean delights and you can buy pound-bags of frozen assorted seafood, such as clams, squid, shrimp, mussels, and scallops.

It is easiest to buy the ready-shelled kind, so you can just tip it all into the soup without having to peel or shell anything. Leave the bag in the refrigerator overnight to thaw, and then drain it well in a colander before using. All the seafood has a similar cooking time (just a few minutes) so you can add it all at the same time. As well as the seafood, the soup features lobster tails, and they are spectacular. You can steam those while the chowder is cooking, and have everything ready at the same time.

The soup is rich and creamy, flavored with potatoes, chicken stock, and celery. It goes beautifully with the classic lobster tails which are steamed over salted water. This makes a great entrée for four people if you serve a green salad and some crusty bread on the side, or a hearty appetizer if you serve it by itself.

How impressive does this look? Just imagine getting served a bowl of this; you could be in a fine restaurant anywhere in the world. If the price tag for such a dish puts you off ordering it in a restaurant, why not make this yourself at home? Do not be put off by the ingredients. You will only need four lobster tails and a pound bag of frozen seafood, so it is not that expensive to make. Also, the recipe is very simple. The lobster will steam in one pot (resist the urge to peek!) and the chowder will cook in another. Then you simply combine them and scatter some parsley on top to complete the dish.
