    GARNISHES

    • Meat from the claws and tails of two lobsters, sliced

    • Bring to a boil, immediately reduce the heat and remove the froth. 
    • Add all other ingredients of the broth and reduce by a third.

    • If desired, strain the broth and pour the required quantity in the Fondussimo. Enjoy. 

    A few tips

    • This fondue is as delicious with all shellfish (such as Northern shrimp, crab or scallops) and fish. To increase the amount of protein without the cost, use lobster along with other seafood your pleasing!
    • To transform the broth into lobster soup, add a cup of 35% cream and thicken it with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch dissolved in the same amount of cold water. For a milder flavour, add water. To enhance the broth’s flavour, reduce at low temperature.
