Preparation

  1. Sauté lobster head, body, and tail shells in hot oil in a large pot over high heat 2 to 3 minutes. Add onion, carrot, and celery, and sauté 3 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in brandy, and cook 1 minute. Stir in tamarind paste, tomato paste, and broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 45 minutes.
