Lobster Bisque #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone,

Happy Sunday to you!   Today around the #SundaySupper we had to bring soup to the table.  I was kind of torn on what kind of soup to make.  I make soup all of the time but my brain went dead when I had to come up with one.  I debated about a Chipotle Black Bean or Butternut Squash Soup, but I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try something I have never made before which is Lobster Bisque.

Lobster Bisque

I have to say I am pretty happy with the outcome of the soup.  It’s creamy, full of flavor and not overly fishy!  I am not a big fish person.  I had two lobster tails that I bought from Trader Joe’s that I intended on making for Valentine’s Day, but that never happened.  What better way to use my lobster tails is to make a healthy, decadent soup!  I felt like a rich person making this!  lol

Lobster Bisque

Since I only had two lobster tails, this recipe makes two servings.  Perfect for a romantic evening.  This soup makes a fabulous appetizer or you can have it alone with some crusty bread and a salad.  Yum!  Were not to fancy in my house, so we had it with pretzel bread.   The soup in general takes about 30 minutes to make, which I don’t think is to bad and it’s pretty simple too!!  Love that!

    What a lovely recipe, Jennifer! I adore lobster, and also haven’t cooked much with it. I’m soooo excited you mentioned that Trader Joes has it, as we’re going there today! Can’t wait to pick some up and give this a try ;-)

  2. I’m going to need to double this recipe…not for more people…but just so I have more for me! :D

  7. I have never made lobster bisque, what a great looking recipe! I had it on a cruise once and loved it, but it has been too long since I have tried it again. Have a great Sunday!!

  8. wait, TJ’s has lobster? Hubby doesn’t eat fish, so I’m pretty out of touch with the fish offerings there now. But this sounds wonderful! Lobster bisque always reminds me of the “yada yada” episode of Seinfeld … you know, where Jerry thinks Elaine yada yada’s over the best part of her date, and she says, no, I mentioned the bisque!

  24. The only way I care for lobster is in bisque. Your bisque looks so much better than the heavy cream versions I’ve had before. Some are so thick and rich they are hard to eat, especially as a first course. Not yours and it would be a fabulous first course.
