Now here's a wonderful soup for a dinner party or other special occasion. There's nothing quite as good as a good lobster bisque.
What a fantastic bisque. I scaled it to 8 servings and it made more like 12. A couple of things that would make this soup a little faster to prepare..... Tie the parsely, bay leaf, peppercorns and lobster shells into cheesecloth and drop into soup when called for. Then you can just remove later. Secondly, you can use a submersion blender to puree the soup before adding the sherry and cream. This will give it a more traditional bisque look also. Great Soup! - 03 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I may be the odd ball here, but this was not very good at all. Seems like it had too much tomato in it. The tomato way overpowered everthing else. It was just tomato soup with other stuff in it. My husband will eat almost anything. He didn't eat this. - 30 Apr 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I used diced canned tomatoes and pureed them, added it to the soup and tasted it, it was wonderful. I didn't have enough tomatoes to measure what the recipe called for so I said the heck with it, I'll add some tomato sauce. I learned a lesson. DON'T ADD TOMATO SAUCE! It makes it taste like tomato soup. But it was excellent with just the pureed diced tomatoes. - 08 Aug 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
