    rsarahl's Note:

    Fragrant, flavorful and rich, this lobster studded soup is a nice way to start a summer meal. Each serving packs a good protein punch, so pair this with a light salad and enjoy! I've included 15 minutes prep for cooking the lobsters.

      If this had more flavor it would be a 5-star, because it has a nice texture bur flavor is somewhat bland. I thought all those cloves simmering might overpower the crab (I used crab instead of lobster, as I couldn't get any lobster); however, the clove flavor is still very subtle. Next time I will mince the onion and celery, cook them, and put them in the final bisque for flavor. To kick it up a flavor notch, I ended up adding some spices to the bisque: 1/2 tsp Old Bay Seasoning, 1 tsp seasoned salt, 1 tbs fresh lemon juice, 1/4 tsp cayenne, and 1 tbs flour for thickening, as the egg yolk didn't thicken the bisque very much. This is a good basic bisque recipe to flavor as you desire.
