This was really bland kind of like lobster meat floating in thickened milk. The best part about it was the lobster meat which would have been better used in another recipe. Read More

This was not at all what I was expecting. It is very easy to make but there is no taste to it...AT ALL. I tried to spice it up by adding a can of creamy tomato soup. It helped a little but not enough. Read More

I made this and shared it with my co-workers for an office luncheon... they have been begging me to make it again ever since!!! I added just a dash of cayenne to the recipe - just enough to add a little flavor and not a lot of heat. It was absolutely wonderful. Thank you. updated changes(8/17/07): added about a tblspoon of tomato paste before adding half and half; used cream sherry instead of dry sherry; added two slices of american cheese with the half and half.

I thought this recipe was horrible. I was highly disappointed with the way it turned out. As someone else stated it tasted like warm milk with lobster cubes in it. Read More

I tried out this recipe a little while ago and with a couple substitutions it was great. Neither myself or my husband like onions so I omitted them then added cayenne for a bit of a hot flick and wow!!! I was amazed at how close it got to restaurant quality if you like spice try the cayenne its worth it:) thanks for the great recipe base!! Read More

i agree with others - very bland. even my husband thought it tasted like warm flour. i added more sherry some white wine old bay seasoning and a dash or two of worcestershire sauce to give it some taste and probably put in 2 cups of cooked lobster. after letting it simmer for almost an hour we had more taste. i love my lobster. ended up with a good bisque but wanted a fabulous bisque.

I would suggest that when making bisque you allow it to mellow overnight. The flavors are much more intense when the lobster infuses the broth. Read More
