Lobster Thermidor is a classic French dish, perfect for an indulgent dinner.
Tender lobster in a decadent cream sauce is baked right in it’s own shell for an impressive dinner that will please any lobster lover.
Similar to Lobster Newburg, Lobster Thermidor is made with a béchamel sauce that’s thickened with flour. It’s typically flavored with wine or cognac and seasoned with mustard instead of nutmeg.
The dish was created in 1894 at Marie’s, a Parisian restaurant located near the Comédie Française, to honor the opening of a play titled “Thermidor” by Victorien Sardou.
