    I watched Paula make this on TV today- Boy does it look good. If lobster is not affordable, you might substitute with canned crab, extra shrimp or as a last resort imitation crab meat.

      This is a pretty good soup and I like the spices, as this would otherwise be bland. I used one tin of crab meat and some fresh baby shrimp. It is quite a thick soup and I think next time I might add some sherry as another person did. I think this would really add to the soup. Thanks for the recipe!

      I made this one time a long time ago but couldn't find the recipe again. So thrilled as the is absolutely the best bisque ever. I only used crabmeat (leftover lb from Red Lobster) and added just a touch of sherry while thickening. I added another teaspoon of the creole seasoning, to taste. Just fabulous and thank you for the recipe cookie dog!!!
