"An elegant, creamy seafood bisque with a hint of sherry flavor is surprisingly quick and easy to make when you use condensed soups as a base."

fresh OR frozen seafood (cut-up lobster, shelled shrimp, scallops, crabmeat OR imitation crabmeat)
2 (10.75 ounce) cans
Campbell's® Condensed Cream of Shrimp Soup
2 (10.75 ounce) cans
Campbell's® Condensed Cream of Potato Soup
hot pepper sauce to taste
Cream sherry to taste
This is actually one of my favorite recipes from Campbell's. I've never had cream sherry on hand, so even without that ingredient, I still love this soup. I usually add one can of drained oysters, which I chop up, I throw in a can of minced clams (juice and all), a good portion of salad shrimp, some chopped crab (imitation adds a certain sweetness to this recipes, which I love), and if I have the money to splurge, I'll throw in some nice bay scallops. I cook that with the butter until everything is nice and hot, and then add in the soups, cream, and half and half (I didn't have cream once, and just used milk in place of it--it was 1% even--and it still turned out fine. I've never tried cutting out the half and half, though). I add a couple grinds of red pepper flakes, heat on medium low for about 10 minutes, and it's done! My 6-year-old (he's a big seafood fan, like me) loves this with some Ritz or butter crackers.
I have made this easy bisque for years and have tried a few things that I think add flavor. Instead of the potato soup I dice potatoes and put them in raw...they basically disappear but it thickens the soup nicely. I also mince about 1/2 c onions into it. If you add a tablespooon or 2 of tomato paste it makes a lovely pink color. The better the seafood you use, obviously the better the experience. Lobster, scallops and shrimp are the best I think, but Ihave thrown in cut up fish and freshly picked crab too. Have not done it with oysters, only because I am not a huge fan of oyters....but I think clams would be good.
Easy to make and delicious
It was really good. I only had 2 cups of half-and-half so substituted the rest with the left over heavy cream. I couldn't get enough of it.
I absolutely love this recipe. My husband and I have made this several times but now we won't be able to make it anymore cause the store I get it at has said that Campbell's has discontinued it. Just like that 2 weeks ago it was in the store now it's gone...Really bummed. I'm still giving it 5 stars cause it was delicious!!
Totally enjoyed the recipe Might consider a half batch next time in order to save calories AND money!
Really easy and delicious. I added diced potatoes and mushrooms instead of cream of mushroom. I'll definitely be making it again.
