For make the lobster broth, melt half of the butter over low heat and add the pieces of the lobster shell. Fry them until some golden pieces begin to catch on the bottom of the casserole.

Then add the water, the tomato paste and a pinch of salt. We keep cooking until everything comes to a boil, then reduce the temperature and leave it for 30 more minutes until it cooks.
After this time, we strain the lobster broth.

Bring the rest of the lobster stock to a boil and add the flour mixture. Let simmer for 5 minutes at the same time that we remove it.
Strain the mixture of roe, liver and cream into the saucepan. Reduce the heat and add the lobster meat that we had reserved. Let simmer until heated.
