"This rich, creamy soup will knock you off your feet! Great as part of a large meal, but meaty enough to use as a full meal."

  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat, and cook and stir the onion until golden, about 8 minutes. Stir in the flour until smooth, and cook and stir the mixture until it turns a pale golden color, about 5 minutes. Whisk in the chicken broth, stirring constantly to avoid lumps, then mix in the half-and-half, salt, crawfish tails, Worcestershire sauce, and cayenne pepper.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low, and continue whisking as soup comes to a simmer. Allow the bisque to simmer for about 5 minutes, until slightly thickened. Do not boil.

Great recipe, I used "Better than Bouillon: Lobster Base" instead of chicken broth.

This. Was. Amazing. I was honestly skeptical about the recipe because it seems TOO simple. I loved it. I improvised a bit because I did not have all of the things listed. I used whole milk...

My husband and I tried this, and we liked it very much :) It was easy and tastey! Next time we will probably add some type of veggie, just for a little crunch. we also used milk because we had...

Sounds yummy. I am planning on making it this weekend. I did add the recipe to my SparkPeople food so I can have it for the nutrition information when I log it. Thanks! I am rating it as a 5 at ...
