We have just started our Mad about Lobster Week here at the Moevenpick Hotel in Accra and I hope you don't mind me sharing some of our favorite recipes. I am now since one week here and have settled quite well. Of course it is a huge difference from working on a ship to coming here, but so far I truly enjoy the challenge.

Ingredients

Number of serving: 8
1 kg Lobster Shells

2 l Vegetable stock

250 g Onions

150 g Carrots

150 g Leeks

150 ml Whitewine

50 g Tomato paste

1 ea Bayleaf

2 ea Cloves

5 ea Peppercorns black

1 l Cream

30 g Tomato Paste

Salt, Pepper

10 small lobster tails

1 big dash of nice Cognac

Preparation

  • Cut the vegetables in cubes

    Roast the shells in a bit oil, add the vegetables and roast for another 5 minutes. Make sure nothing burns but it can have a bit color
  • Add Tomato paste and roast for one more minute, than add vegetable stock and spices.

    Bring to a boil and then simmer for 45 minutes, strain
  • Reduce a little, add the cream and season to taste
  • Add the second bit of tomato paste to color the soup a bit more
  • You should have about 2 litres of Bisque, then the taste and concentration will be perfect
  • Take one small lobster tail per person, or half a one depending on budget, fry it slightly in a bit olive oil
  • Just before serving add the Cognac to the bisque, like this you get the full flavor, maybe top with a little whipped cream and serve immediately
