    Slowly pour half-and-half into vegetable mixture and stir until blended. Stir in tomato paste. Cook over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes or until bisque begins to thicken. Add paprika, Old Bay seasoning, cayenne, sugar, and sherry. Stir to blend. Add cooked lobster meat, then salt and pepper to taste. Simmer bisque over low heat for about 5 minutes, until heated through. Don't boil.
