Chef Roger’s Creamy Lobster Bisque

img_5091

 

 

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons of onion finely minced
1/3 stick butter
Pepper to taste
2  frozen lobster tails
1 can tomato soup
2 pints heavy cream
Sherry to taste
green onions  for garnish

Preparation:


Thaw tails in fridge or cold water.

Saute the chopped onions in  the butter and add the pepper to it. Set aside.

Place the lobster in 1 to 1-1/2 cups boiling water.  Bring the water back to a boil. Cook 7 minutes for 5-ounce tails, 7-1/2 minutes for 6-ounce, and about 8 minutes if the tails weigh 8 ounces. Once  it is done, remove the lobster from the broth and reduce the broth down to about half. 

Add the sauted butter and onions, the can of tomato soup, and 2 pints heavy cream to the reduction. Stir until blended. 

Remove lobster from shells and chop. 

Just before serving the bisque add the chopped/minced lobster meat.  

Garnish with green onions and serve with garlic bread. 

We add sherry to taste individually at the table. I use about a tablespoon per bowl.

    Okay Donna, you really got my attention on this one. Lobster bisque is my most favorite soup in the world, especially with the bits of chopped meat. I see the magic ingredient is reducing the water of the lobster. Yum yum yum, many thanks.
