This was as good as any restaurant bisque I have had in the past. I had nice blue lump crab meat so I added it in the last 15 minutes. Also I know that it has enough fat content already but when making something for the fam for the first time I go for all out taste - added a cup of shredded colby/jack cheese at end and 1/2 can of rotel(suggestion from sis) (Tomatoes and green chile)... thanks! My shrimp and crab were glad they were not wasted! Read More

This soup was REALLY good! My husband said it was the best thing I've ever made (and we've been together for 10 years). I didn't change anything about the recipe other than I didn't get the veggies very tender when sautéing them and we really liked the crunchiness that added later. I didn't have creole seasoning but had Penzey's Cajun seasoning and I used a teaspoon and a half of that. This is definitely a keeper and next time we'll add a can of crab meat to liven things up. Great recipe!! Read More

I made this for our "SOUPER" Bowl party -- it was a big hit! I got find the liquid crab and shrimp boil so I used a mixture of the Old Bay Seasoning and a little water but I am sure that the real thing would have been super! Thank you Read More

I threw in some serrano peppers and hot sauce for an extra kick. I used skim milk instead of cream and it worked fine. Read More

I didn't have any shrimp & crab boil so I just used extra Creole seasoning but otherwise followed the recipe as is and it was delicious! Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

I used this for my cooking business. I didn't put in the liquid shrimp and my client liked it without that he did say that it wasn't as cajun as he thought it would be though so I would add some more spice to give it a kick. Read More

Delicious! Will make again for sure! A great addition would be orien cut potatoes or black beans. My fam declares this a new FAV! I did add more of the Creole seasoning than called for because my fam likes it spicy but not too hot. Keeper Recipe! Read More
