Now it's all become clear! It has to be:

A Bisque of Lobsters

2 or 3 lobster shells
6 cups water
3 tablespoons butter
1 rib celery, chopped
1 carrot, scraped and chopped
2 leeks, sliced
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tablespoons flour
1 1/4 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup lobster meat, cut in chunks
dash of cayenne pepper

Crack or grind up the lobster shells a bit.  If you have food
processor, break the shells up and put in a few pieces at a time
until they break up in small pieces.  Cover shells with the water
and cook over medium heat for about 25 minutes.  Strain.  Should
be about 4 1/2 cups lobster broth.

In heavy saucepan, melt the butter and saute the vegetables
gently,stirring for about 5 minutes.  Stir in the flour and
cook,stirring 1 minute.  Then add the strained lobster broth and
whisk until smooth. Cook gently about 20 minutes, until the vegetables
are tender.Puree soup in a blender or food processor.  Return it
to the heat and add the cream.  Season with salt and cayenne
pepper. Add lobster meat and heat.

Yield 4 servings
