Wow! This was amazing. I've never made a soup before, so I followed the directions as closely as I could with a few minor additions and the result was spectacular. The bisque was so amazing that my husband (and I) are a little worried I may never be able to duplicate it ? These are my additions: when I added the broth, corn, and bay leaf, I also added a about half of a small jar of pimentos because I thought they would give a nice touch of color and I think many crab bisque's I’ve eaten at restaurants have something red – I wasn’t sure if it was a red pepper or pimento, but the pimento worked very well and was soft and tasty in the soup.. When I added the milk, cream, and liquid crab boil, I also added three splashes of cooking sherry. By the way, I had no idea what “liquid crab and shrimp boil seasoning” is. I searched the spice aisle of our best grocer and found ‘superior touch better than bouillon lobster base’ and hoped for the best. This seemed to work quite well. I am not a Cajun cooker, but a friend gave us Tony Chachare’s “More Spice” seasoning as a gift, and three “shakes” of this Cajun spice resulted in a bisque that was not spicy until after swallowing, when a mild spice (I have young children) emerged. This was wonderful – I hope I can re-create it!
