Ingredients

Quesadillas:

  • 2 pounds thawed frozen or fresh cooked lobster meat
  • 10 8-inch flour tortillas
  • 2 pounds cream cheese
  • 1 pound Cheddar shredded
  • 1 bunch scallions chopped
  • 1 roasted red onion chopped
  • 3 roasted plum tomatoes chopped
  • 4 tablespoons Sriracha Thai hot sauce, available at most markets
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 2 tablespoons canola or olive oil

Newburg Sauce:

  • 1 pt. hot milk
  • 1/3 c. butter
  • 1/4 c. bread flour
  • 3 egg yolks beaten
  • 1/4 c. heavy cream
  • 4 tbsp. sherry
  • 2 tbsp. brandy
  • Salt and few grains red pepper

Instructions

Quesadillas:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. F. Cut onion and tomatoes in half and place on a baking sheet. Put into hot oven and roast for 15 minutes or until softened. Remove and let cool slightly and coarsely chop.
  • Combine all ingredients together in a mixer except for tortillas and lobster meat. On an 8 inch flour tortilla, spread 1/2 cup of the mixture and 3 ounces of lobster meat evenly on 1/2 of tortilla and fold over to create a half moon shape. Repeat with each tortilla.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, add oil and pan-fry tortilla until brown and crispy, about 3 minutes per side. Cut into wedges and serve with salsa, guacamole and sour cream.

Newburg Sauce:

  • Using wire whip blend flour and butter in iron skillet over low flame. Stir constantly while adding hot milk. Remove skillet from flame, add beaten egg yolks and cream. Return to flame long enough for eggs to cook. Season. This sauce will not separate and can be stored in refrigerator. 4-6 servings.
  • Sherry, brandy and lobster meat are added to sauce immediately before heating in preparation for serving.
