Creamy Crawfish Bisque Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
I normally don't write anything about the recipes I discover here, though this is my favorite place to find recipes. I do have to write about this one. It is well worth the time it takes to make this one. I made a double batch just because I had over 2lbs of crawfish I needed to use. I only blended about at 1/3rd of crawfish with the tomatoes, only because I like big chunks of meat. I also did half heavy cream and half and half. I love it. It did seem to be missing something, but I can't put my finger on it. I'm going to add garlic next time to see if that is what is missing(only because I'm a big garlic fan). It still very delicious and well worth it.

Very rich but outstanding in every way imaginable. I largely followed the recipe other than substituting 2 lbs. wild caught langostino lobster tails for the 1 lb. crawfish tails, and adding 2 tbsp fresh oregano since it was either use or lose. Next time around, I would make a few minor adjustments: (i) in step 6, it calls for blending 3/4 of crawfish tails before adding to stock pot . . . would change to no more than 2/3 and probably 1/2 to give more texture & bite; add the remainder of these tails into soup during last simmer step rather than using them as a garnish, and (ii) just do a chop of leek, carrot, and celery rather than mincing them since these are going to be pureed in a blender anyhow. Skeeter, thank you for sharing this exceptional recipe.

This is excellent. We have full bellies from it now. I loved it. The only thing I did differently was not to blend the crawfish tails. I agree with the previous post that the tarragon really makes a difference, gives it that restaurant flair. We are Who Dat nation livin in Chicago, missing the NOLA and this really helped satisfy a craving. Delicious, I can't wait to make it again.

My husband and I love this bisque! We love to try new recipes and we had a great time with this one. Of course we added Good Wine and fresh baked bread. Had the perfect amount of spice. I thought the tarragon was a perfect complement to the taste. Thankyou for sharing.
