Lobster Bisque

1 review

My grandmother would make lobster bisque all the time, so it's always been a comforting recipe to me. If you don't care to cook live lobsters, they can usually cook it where you buy them. Just be sure to tell them to keep the shells; they are key to this delicious soup! —James Schend, Taste of Home Deputy Editor
