    Heat the oil in a pan. Briefly sauté the onion. Add the tomato puree and roasted lobster shells, cook briefly. Add the cognac and reduce almost completely. Pour in the stock, add the bay leaves and vanilla, bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, simmer for approx. 25 mins., strain (yields approx. 700 ml of stock).
  4. Step 4

    Heat the oil in a pan. Sauté the onion. Add the rice and sauté until translucent, stirring constantly. Pour in the wine and reduce almost completely. Gradually add the lobster stock to the rice, stirring frequently, so that the rice is always just covered with liquid. Simmer for approx. 20 mins. until the rice is creamy and al dente.
