Lobster Bisque

Make it pretty: Dollops of sour cream, 
snips of green onion tops 
+ a drizzle of cocktail sauce.

This is the easiest dinner to cook for a special night! Soup, wine and crusty artisan bread for dipping.

Speaking of dipping... finish the meal with a gigantic bowl of strawberries and packaged chocolate fondue.

Lobster Bisque Recipe
  1. Steam: As much lobster as you can afford. I used about 1 pound. Shred it into bite size bits.
  2. Simmer: 1 cup chicken broth and 1/4 cup finely diced yellow onion.
In a separate pan:
  1. Melt 2 tbsp. butter. Stir in 2 tbsp flour.
  2. Add 2 cups milk, bring to boil (I use 1 cup half and half + 1 cup 2% milk ~ which is why it tastes so yummy. You could go completely nuts and use heavy cream!)
Stir In: Chicken broth, onions, plus:
  • 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 tbsp. Cocktail Sauce
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste
* This decadent mess can simmer or crockpot for however long you want.
** I add the lobster about 20 minutes before serving so it has a fresher flavor.
