Cedar Street Lobster Bisque

Top Review by anme7039

This recipe makes a whole lot of soup so I scaled it down to about 3 or so but it still could feed more than that. I used skim milk thickend with some cornstarch to attempt to replace the heavy cream. Surprisingly the skim milk worked just fine in this recipe once I added some cornstarch to it. I feel this is an excellent base to make a more hearty soup with different types of seafood.
