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.

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


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!
