- 2 lobsters, about 1 1/2 pounds each
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 carrots, chopped

- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup brandy
- 1/4 cup tomato paste
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Chopped fresh parsley for garnish
- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the lobsters and cook for about 8 minutes. Remove them and let them cool.
- Once cooled, crack the lobster shells and remove the meat. Chop the meat into small pieces and set aside.
- In a large soup pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, carrots, and celery. Sauté until the vegetables are soft and the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
- Add the minced garlic and sauté for another minute until fragrant.
- Stir in the brandy and tomato paste, and cook for 2-3 minutes to reduce and concentrate the flavors.
- Add the lobster meat, chicken broth, heavy cream, and paprika. Bring the mixture to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Using an immersion blender or regular blender, puree the soup until smooth and creamy.
- Return the soup to the pot and gently reheat if necessary.
- Serve hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley.
