Phyllo triangles with lobster filling

Yield: 50 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 \N Lobster - steamed
4 tablespoons Unsalted butter
6 \N Green onions - finely chopped
¼ cup White wine - or vodka
1½ tablespoon Flour
¼ cup Whipping cream
1 pinch Cayenne pepper
\N \N Salt and pepper to taste
1 pounds Phyllo
1 pounds Unsalted butter

Number of Servings: 50

Remove all the meat from the lobster and chop. Set aside. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a small skillet, and saute the green onions for 2 or 3 minutes. Add the lobster meat and wine or vodka, and stir quickly to combine over high heat. Drain the mixture, reserving the liquid. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter in another skillet.

Add the flour and cook slowly without coloring the flour for 5 minutes. Add the reserved liquid and the cream, and stir constantly until the mixture begins to thicken. Stir lobster meat back into mixture, add cayenne pepper and season to taste. Cool mixture before filling phyllo. To assemble the triangles, melt and cool the pound of butter. Place one sheet of phyllo on a flat surface and brush lightly with butter. Top this with two more sheets, buttering each. Cut the sheets in half lengthwise, then cut each half crosswise into 6 equal parts. Spoon a teaspoon of filling onto the end of each strip and form a triangle by folding the righthand corner to the opposite side, as you would a flag. Continue folding until the entire strip is used. Preheat oven to 400F. Place triangles on a buttered baking sheet. Brush the tops of each with melted butter and bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes. NOTE: Filled phyllo triangles can be kept in the refrigerator, unbaked, for 2 days, or frozen immediately for future use.
