In Dutch oven, combine leek, celery, lemon, bay leaf, parsley, salt, peppercorns and 5 cups (1.25 L) water; bring to boil.

Grasp back of lobster; plunge headfirst into water. Cover and return to boil. Reduce heat to bubbly simmer; cook until lobster is bright red and small leg comes away easily when twisted and pulled, about 10 minutes.

Remove lobster from stock; let cool enough to handle before shelling . Strain stock through fine sieve.
