New Year's Lobster, e now Lobster Stock, is in search of how to best use...

So I took all the lobster shells from our New Year’s Eve dinner and created a great lobster stock yesterday. I have about 8-12 cups. What would be the best recipe for use of this stock? I have a brand new immersion blender and am partial to soups this time of year, but not a typical creamy lobster bisque. Something with a bit of cream is OK though. Most soups use chicken or beef stock, but I wonder if I can substitute lobster stock, and not including ramen/udon noodle soups, what soup recipe would be best? I am not planning on freezing the stock so I have about a week to find the perfect use. Ideas greatly appreciated, thank you!

Add stock to tomatoes as base for seafood stew, bouillabaise, cioppino, etc. Combine with milk for grits cooking liquid. serve cajun spiced shrimp over the grits. Make Avgolemeno soup using lobster stock instead of chicken stock and sfd in place of chicken.

Dig the seafood stew and risotto ideas, much thanks Pegeen & Le Bec Fin!!! If only I had my fresh picked tomatoes now too :-) I did kick up the stock a bit though with some tomato paste which should work nicely with both ideas. Much Thanks!!!

A Paella would be really nice too! A few fresh seafood items and the rice cooked with your stock:) Sounds delicious!

Along LBF's seafood ideas - as a broth for mussels. The tomato base would be lovely, some wine, garlic, parsley.

Use stock to make a Thai shrimp soup--shrimp, hot pepper flakes or jalepeno, fish sauce, shredded napa cabbage, s/p, a little chopped cilantro to garnish
