Looking for Boston-style shrimp in lobster sauce

For those of you unfamiliar with it, in Boston, the dish is served with a brown sauce rather than a white sauce.

    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.

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

          Definitely comfort food for many of my friends who grew up in Newton-Brookline.
