Matt's Crab & Clam Bisque

Matt's Crab & Clam Bisque


"This luscious bisque combines seafood with potatoes, milk, dill weed, and minced vegetables. Its slight kick comes courtesy of red pepper flakes and Worcestershire. For a richer version, use cream instead of milk. If you like, add baby shrimp, too!"

My boyfriend came home with a spider crab he caught in the harbor down the street, having no idea what to make I searched and found this amazing recipe. It takes a bit longer to make than it st...

FANTASTIC!!! ok, perhaps the reason why I chose to make this dish is because my boyfriend's name is Matt, but this was wonderful! Some modifications...I honestly didn't want to put canned crab ...

I tried this recipe last night, but made a small addition of 1 lb of bay scallops. It went very well, and was an excellent soup that Jason and I had with garlic bread. Great job Matt!
