Yield: about 5 cups

Ingredients:

  • 3 lobster carcasses and shells
  • 2 quarts water
  • 1 cup dry white wine (such as Pinot Grigio)
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes (fresh or canned) with juices

Instructions:

Split carcasses’ heads; remove head sacs and discard. Place carcasses and shells in a large (6- to 8-quart) pot and add 2 quarts water. Heat to boiling; skim scum from surface. Reduce heat to a gentle boil.
Add wine, tomatoes, onions, celery, carrots, garlic, thyme, bay leaves, peppercorns, and fennel seeds. Cook until liquid is reduced by half. Add water if liquid cooks to below lobster shells.
Season to taste with salt; simmer 15 minutes more. Strain stock. If not using immediately, chill quickly. Cover and refrigerate stock up to 2 days, or freeze for later use.
