ISO advice w/frozen lobster stock with meat

First question, is the stock still good?
I made the stock on New Years day, Jeremy and I had splurged on our yearly fancy dinner and decided to buy two live lobsters, after which I cleaned them dug out the rest of the meat and made a lovely stock.
Question 2, what do I do with it now? I live in a small town so there is no where to get fresh seafood, though I do have frozen, should I make some kind of stew? I do really want to use it but I've got no ideas as to what to do here...

Should be fine. Mmm, lobster stock!

Clam chowdah, shrimp bisque, fish stew, boullabaisse, all can be made with canned or frozen shellfish and fish. Or just heat and eat as is, maybe with some cream and butter.

If you have chunks of lobster meat in the stock, even better!

Lobster bisque would be a natural.

Buonasera,

Lobster Stock ... Lucky, our season for fresh Brittany France, or Galician, Spain Lobster is November through March ...

I would prepare a beautiful Cioppino shellfish and fish stew with tomatoes, shallot, garlic, herbs, the lobster stock, some other types of fresh white fish and shell fish, prawns, clams, mussels ... Serve on cappellini, angel hair pasta ...

Kind regards,
Have a lovely Monday.
Ciao, Margaux.

Don't forget the crusty bread to sop up all that lobster-y goodness!

Ms. Beans,

Got Garlic has a good point ... sop it up with the best gluten free crusty or flat bread you can buy or home bake ... Does Focaccia rubbed with Evoo and fresh herbs have gluten ?

Enjoy the evening,
Ciao, Margaux

If it has wheat flour it has gluten.
