I would probably add a little sherry next time to enhance flavour. Read More

I have done a lot of cooking within the past seven years but until I sought out this recipe I had never attempted a lobster bisque. It was easy to make and tasted better than the bisque you order in a fine restaraunt. My girlfriend was very pleased and it made for a lovely dinner. Read More

Thank you Angie. I made this for my mom's 50th birthday. She is a chef and was impressed. I added a tablespoon of tomato paste for color and subtituted fat free evaporated milk for the cream and no one could tell the difference. I am making it again for my husband tonight. He loves it!!!! Read More

This recipe seems more like a starter. When it was done it tasted a bit bland to me. I added some bay leaves and a touch of paprika initially then resorted to open a small can of tomato paste and milk and BLAM! That's what I was going for! YUM! Read More

My husband and I enjoyed this one cold New England evening with a nice loaf of warm bread! (I tried it in the crockpot and it came out great although it does take more time!) Thanks ANGIE!! Read More

I've never made bisque before nor even tasted it so I was playing a guessing game of whether or not I did things right. It turned out fairly well but I don't know that I would make it again. If I did I would probably add more lobster meat (I didn't actually use enough in the first place the tail I bought was only about 3/4 cups of meat) and I would definitely remember to cut it up a lot more than I had. My boyfriend and roommate both enjoyed it but it was a little too bland for its rich texture. Read More

This was pretty good - I scaled it to two servings and used more lobster. It was a bit too salty so I will reduce or eliminate the salt next time. Read More
