Good simple bisque, especially when there's no stock on hand, but it calls for too much sherry. I would highly recommend reducing the amount of sherry by half as I think I actually got drunk by eating this, and the alcohol overpowered the delicate flavor of langoustines. Thank you.

This recipe turned out really lovely. I doubled it, used about half shrimp and half frozen langoustines, and non-fat milk. The flavor was exceptional and the texture was perfect. It is a nice way to use langoustines if you have them or could be really nice with just shrimp. Thanks for posting!
