Directions

  1. Melt the butter or margarine over medium heat in a large saucepan or stockpot; add the onion, garlic, carrot, bay leaf, and thyme. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion softens. Add the lobster shells, and cook until they turn red.
  2. Add the wine and tomatoes. Bring to a gentle boil, and simmer for about 5 minutes. Add the stock and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium, and simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Remove the bay leaf. Remove the lobster shells; remove the meat from the shell, and set aside.
  4. Place the soup, in batches if necessary, in a blender or food processor; process until smooth. Return the soup to the pot, and bring to a boil. Add the cream and any lobster meat you may have, and heat through. Check for seasoning. Sprinkle with the parsley, and season with salt and pepper. Serve.

I liked it, but it needed more flavor. I added, a lot of pepper (no salt), Old Bay Seasoning, a couple of dashes of tabasco and worchestire. I would suggest not pureeing the meat with the rest of the soup.

I made this bisque for a special treat for my family. Everybody just loved it! Im not sure if I did something wrong but in my opinion it was more like a soup than a bisque. Even after adding the cream it wasnt creamy. Regarless, everyone had seconds and I will be making this dish again!

I was expecting a more creamier soup, like bisque usually is. I added cornstarch to thicken it and also used a little Old Bay Seasoning. Otherwise it would not have enough flavor. I don't think I'll make this again. Kind of an expensive soup.

Loved this recipe! It used all natural ingredients and for more flavor I added worcestershire sauce, paprika and chilli. Really delicious!

Cooking the whole tails added wonderful flavour. I substituted 1/4 cup of brandy for the white wine, added an extra cup of cream, and thickened with cornstarch to get the thick texture. The bisque was delicate, delightful, and really highlighted the taste of the lobster.

Though I followed the recipe, I found this to be less flavorful than I would have liked. It would have also been helpful to know the preferred size of lobster tails to use. Mine were on the small side, so I added extras, but still found there to be too little lobster meat in the finished soup. I ended up adding extra seasoning to this recipe.
