We live in Maine, so we like to use fresh lobster in this time-honored recipe. However, it can also be made with frozen, canned or imitation lobster. No matter how you prepare it, guests will think you fussed when you treat them to these rich individual seafood casseroles. —Wendy Cornell, Hudson, Maine

Ingredients

  • 3 cups fresh, frozen or canned flaked lobster meat or imitation lobster chunks
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 3 cups whipping cream
