Classic Lobster Bisque

After eating this in a restaurant I had to make it myself. This is a great recipe that that creates a wonderful flavoured bisque without significant effort.

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the diced onion and cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent; about 5 minutes.

  4. Season with cayenne pepper, black pepper, seafood seasoning, Worcestershire sauce and spring onion.
  5. Cook and stir over medium heat until the bisque begins to simmer; about 15 minutes.
