    I have made this bisque several times now and it is always fantastic. I tend to simplify things so I use a package of imitation lobster in place of the crabmeat and frozen cooked and peeled shrimp. I use extra onion. But the real secret...I use all heavy whipping cream instead of the half-and-half and the wine. It's already low-carb but by using the heavy cream, you can almost eliminate the need for the flour, making it even lower in carbs! Silky smooth and rich. I love this stuff!  -  21 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Family loved this recipe!! I skipped the chicken boullion and added an additional 1/2 cup of half & half. I also added 2 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning and 1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper to spice it up. It was wonderful - I will certainly make again!  -  17 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was simple and delicious! I doubled the recipe so I had some to freeze. I added some minced garlic to the onion, added a 1/8 tsp of cayenne pepper, used half fat free half & half, and half regular, and used imitation crabmeat. Before adding the second half of half and half, I used my wand blender, and blended half of the recipe. This was terrific, and I will def. make it again. Thanks!  -  05 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
