Great starter recipe. Scaled down to 4 servings. Used a whole cup of lobster tail meat. Substited half cup of milk for chicken broth and added a good splash of red wine, and substituted sliced onions for chopped green onions Added about a teaspoon of parlsey a quarter cup celery, half teasppon of cayenne pepper, and half teaspoon of paprika and two tablespoons of chopped garlic. Sauteed garlic and celery with onions and lobster. Also added a quarter cup od crushed tomatoes for color and flavor. Be sure to increase quantity of flour to insure proper consistency. Simmered for an hour to get good infusion of flavors! Also added one bay leave while simmering. Tasted wonderful. Enjoy!


I have done a lot of cooking within the past seven years, but until I sought out this recipe I had never attempted a lobster bisque. It was easy to make and tasted better than the bisque you order in a fine restaraunt. My girlfriend was very pleased and it made for a lovely dinner.

Thank you Angie. I made this for my mom's 50th birthday. She is a chef and was impressed. I added a tablespoon of tomato paste for color and subtituted fat free evaporated milk for the cream and no one could tell the difference. I am making it again for my husband tonight. He loves it!!!!
