Lightened-Up Lobster Bisque
Remove lobster tails from shells; chop and set aside. With scissors, cut shells into smaller pieces and add broth, shells and bay leaves to medium saucepan set over medium-high heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes. Strain and discard shells and bay leaves.
Meanwhile, melt butter in large saucepan set over medium heat, add mirepoix and cook for 5 to 8 min. or until softened and lightly browned. Sprinkle flour over top and cook for 1 min; add tomato paste and paprika and cook 1 more min. Gradually whisk in strained broth, then stir in milk and bring to a simmer; cook for 12 to 15 min. or until thickened and vegetables are tender.
Using a hand blender, purée until smooth. Stir reserved chopped lobster into mixture. Heat over low heat until lobster is warmed through and stir in chives.
