This was delicious and definitely easy-a keeper. I used salmon that comes in an foil packet. The only change I will make next time is half the salt. Thank you for sharing, Rita.
I'd give this 4 stars if it were high fat; however, for low-fat, low-calorie, it was very good. I used Spicy V-8 juice in place ot tomato juice, 'cause that's what I had on hand. I also used canned salmon, undrained, which may be why I thought the bisque should have been a little thicker - or perhaps I should have cut back on the milk. A delicious flavor - didn't taste low-fat at all. I think this would be a good base for a variety of seafood, such as crab, shrimp, etc. Thanks for a good recipe, Rita.
This turned out well with ingredients I already had on hand. I used canned salmon. I also used a generic Clamato juice that I had in the pantry instead of plain tomato juice. I whisked the cornstarch and baking powder with a little of the milk before adding it so it wouldn't make lumps.
