I was really excited to try this recipe because a local restaurant makes a great clam bisque. I was incredibly disappointed when I tasted the recipe. I ended up adding 4 cubes of chicken bouillon, some salt and some garlic. It was edible, but still not at all what I was hoping for. I will not be making this recipe again!

Mmmm.... Rich and creamy! I made this as written, just adding a little gaelic. The texture was perfect. The flavor was also very good, but next time I would add some fresh herbs; maybe parsley and tarragon.... just to enhance the flavor a bit more. Thanx for posting!
