Drawn Butter

Now that I've mentioned the garlic cheese biscuits in the previous post, the annual Christmas Eve lobster and shrimp boil isn’t complete without drawn butter to dip your lobster in. It’s easy to burn, so pay attention to what you're doing!

  • 2 sticks of unsalted butter, room temperature.
Melt butter in a small saucepan on medium heat. Let it come to a boil. Boil for one minute and set the pan off the heat. You will see the white milk solids form at the top and then sink to the bottom* of the pan. With a ladle, spoon out individual bowls for each person. Keep warm until ready to eat lobster.

*Or skim off as they settle at the top, before they sink.
