Cut the lobsters’ tail from the head, and boil the cut-in-half heads in a pot for aprox. 8 min. Fry lightly the onions, red pepper, grated tomatoes, garlic and parsley in olive oil. Add the rice and the hot strainned stock (double water per measure of rice) and spice it with paprika, salt and black pepper. Bring it to boil and cook it in medium heat. Add the lobster’ tail in pieces in the last 10 minutes of cooking.
