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! 😀

    3. I can practically taste this soup. I adore lobster any way it comes, and your soup is generous with lobster! So comforting and savory looking, it’s on my “Must Make List.” Kudos!


    4. I like that you used Greek Yogurt! Yum!

    5. This soup is so rich and sophisticated, definitely one to share. Gorgeous!

    6. What a decadent soup! Looks wonderful, and perfect for any ocassion with the lobster

    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!

    9. The next time I find lobster on sale I am totally going to try out your recipe.

    10. I don’t eat fish but I bet my husband would love this!! You make it sound easy too! Thanks for sharing.

    11. You absolutely did a great job – fabulous idea to use up your lobster!

    12. One of my absolute favorites and look at those big yummy pieces of lobster. I love it!!

    13. I love anything with lobster in it, and a bisque is such a great way to enjoy it!

    14. I must try this. It looks good!

    15. I’ve never made lobster bisque either, but have always wanted to. Love that it uses Greek yogurt!

    16. This looks tasty! Haven’t had lobster in a soup before! Looks good!!

    17. Wow, what a delicious indulgence! Those big chunks of lobster look amazing!

    18. Is it wrong that I want to pull those chunks of lobster right out? Of course knowing me, I’ll enjoy the soup and savor the lobster till the end (fighting my husband off for them!)

    19. Looks and sounds so chic. Luxury in a bowl 🙂

    20. What a beautiful, classic soup. Made me miss my days in New England where you find this dish on a lot of restaurant menus. Now I’ll have to try it at home!

    21. This looks like the perfect special occasion soup! 🙂

    22. Love the giant chunks of lobster!

    23. I love lobster, but I’ve never tried a lobster bisque. This looks so good!

    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.

    25. Your lobster bisque looks awesome!

    26. You had me at lobster…. YUM!

    27. oh wow!! I love this!! so yummy and elegant! seriously looks so delicious!

    28. I have never had lobster bisque before but it sounds delicious
