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!!!

FANTASTIC! I followed recipe as described. So easy to make and so much flavor. My wife was skeptical as she has never eaten this before. She loved it from the first bite. Thank you for providing this recipe

This was phenomenal! I did not put the soup in a bread bowl, instead I served it in regular bowls with crusty bread on the side. There was not an empty bowl left! Very easy to make as well :)

This soup tasted amazing. I was a little scared at first because the only seafood I normally cook with is shrimp, but I thought it would be interesting to try this with the lobster. It turned out great and wasn't as hard as I thought to cook up the lobster tail!!

To cut the calories and starch I didn't use the bread bowl but made bread sticks instead. lso I went with more creole seasoning as I like if turned up notch. I will also try sherry next time.

Hi cookiedog, OMG this is wonderful! A friend had company over and we had this - used fresh lobster tails and fresh shrimp, add we added sherry like another poster. Used a touch of nutmeg and I couldn't wait to try it! It had a lovely creamy flavor - my friend Luisa only used 1 cup 1/2 & 1/2 & the other milk. She doubled the recipe and each of us had our own bread bowls! WOW!! I loved it, can't you tell? Thanks, Diane

WOW! This is incredible. Very easy to put together and very filling. No fresh lobster around here so I used canned crab meat (I can't imagine it tasting any better, but I'm sure it would with lobster). The only other changes I made was adding some sherry. I love the flavor of sherry in soups like this so I added 1/4 cup sherry and then added the chicken broth to make the 3 cups. I also added a little extra creole seasoning, since I like things a little spicier than most. This is definitely a keeper and something that will be made again, and again.
