  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup half and half
  • 4 oz shredded Vermont white sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 (3-4 oz) lobster tails
  • ½ pinch kosher salt
  • 1 pinch fresh cracked pepper
  • ¼ cup dry sherry
  • 1 ½ lb haddock


  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the lobster tails and poach 1 minute per ounce tail. Remove from the water and set aside until cool enough to handle.
  • Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour, whisk until smooth, and cook, stirring often, 2 minutes to make a roux.
  • Whisk in the milk and half-and-half, and cook, stirring constantly, a couple minutes until just slightly thickened. Remove from heat. Add the cheese, and stir until cheese is melted and sauce is smooth. Add the sherry, salt, and pepper.
  • Split the lobster tails, remove the meat and chop. Add the meat to the sauce.
  • Place the fish, skin side down, in a 9×13-inch baking dish. Pour the lobster sauce over.
  • Bake at 350°F uncovered for 25 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve.
