Because this vinaigrette is made with lobster stock, it is not quite as acidic as other vinaigrettes. The subtle shellfish flavor will enbance, but not overpower, delicate foods.

Make-ahead note:

Lobster stock can be refrigerated up to 1 week or frozen; lobster syrup can be refrigerated up to 1 week. The finished vinaigrette can be refrigerated up to 3 weeks. Whisk to recombine before using.
