This bisque is AWESOME!! I've always loved lobster bisque and now that my husband catches lobster a lot, I decided to try out some lobster recipes myself. I used a lot of the advice that others gave and I'm so glad that I did. I used 1 shallot rather than regular onion. To replace the milk, I used 1 cup half and half, 1/2 cup heavy cream, 1/2 cup skim milk (the only milk I had in the house). I increased the amount of Worcestershire sauce to 1 tablespoon and cayenne pepper to 1/2 teaspoon. I also added 3 tablespoons of tomato puree and about 1/2 cup parsley near the end. I didn't want to overcook the lobster so I let the sauce simmer for about 30 minutes, then added the nearly fully cooked lobster (which I sauteed with butter, shallots and garlic) to the sauce to simmer for another 30 minutes. SO TASTY! If you prefer a mild taste, reduce the cayenne pepper. 1/2 teaspoon gives a nice kick which I loved.
