Lobster Chowder


In Nova Scotia, we love lobster all year round! Whip up this rich Lobster Chowder from Oak Island Resort & Conference Centre in the winter to warm up on a chilly day or in the summer for a delicious weekday lunch.


1 cooked, Nova Scotia Lobster
2 ears corn, brushed with oil and paprika
1 jalapeno, small diced
2 stalks celery, small diced
2 medium potatoes, small diced
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup Nova Scotia white wine
2 cups clam juice
2 cups whipping cream
2 sprigs fresh Italian parsley
1 sprig fresh tarragon
1 sprig fresh thyme

  1. Cook the lobster to your preference, then place in an ice bath to cool.
  2. Once cooled, remove meat from shell.
  3. Grill corn until fully cooked. Once cooled, cut kernels from cob.
  4. Lightly saute celery, onions and half the jalapeno in olive oil.
  5. Deglaze with white wine and reduce by half.
  6. Add clam juice and bring to a simmer.
  7. Add whipping cream and reduce by half, about 20 minutes.
  8. In another pot, boil diced potato in salted water until just cooked, then cool.
  9. Reduce heat of chowder then add potato, corn, lobster meat and fresh herbs.
  10. Heat until is warmed through.
