Lidia's Family Table - Brodetto with Lobster and Corn

Cook for another minute and then scatter the chopped leeks into the pan; stir them and heat for a minute. Clear a space and drop in the tomato paste; toast it in the hot spot for a minute, then pour in the milled tomatoes or tomato sauce and 2 cups of broth or water—or more, if necessary, so the lobster shells are just covered. Raise the heat to high, sprinkle another 1/4 teaspoon salt and the peperoncino all over and stir and shake the pan as the sauce comes to a boil.
