Looking for Boston-style shrimp in lobster sauce

  1. I never knew that was a New England thing (it's served the same way in RI), but now that I think about it I guess I haven't eaten it that way around these parts.

    1. Does anyone have a recipe for the dark brown shrimp in lobster sauce? All I seem to find is the white sauce recipe.
