Easy Seafood Bisque

I've always enjoyed seafood bisque at restaurants and one day decided to try my hand at a homemade version. Everyone says this is one of the better recipes they've tasted. —Cindy Rogowski, Lancaster, New York

    Very easy and tasty! I didn’t have cream of shrimp soup so I used seafood stock that I had in my freezer instead. I like that this recipe doesn’t use cream. Family enjoyed it!

    Very good! Thank you for sharing. If you and your husband don't like someone's recipie it's very simple for you. Don't prepare it again. You don't have to return to publicly announce you didnt like it as it "wasn't special". I didn't read anywhere alluding to it being special.

    Loved it! A little salty but delicious and healthy, a nice low calorie meal. Will definitely make again!

    Neither my husband nor I cared a lot for this. It had a mild flavor that neither of us thought was anything special. I won't be making it again.

    Who would think that a recipe that's this quick and easy would be so rich tasting. I'll definitely make this again, and next time I'll chop my imitation crab meat much more finely.

    I am not a big fan of seafood but my husband thought this was pretty good and it was so easy to make.
