    Kimke's Note:

    This is modified from a Bon Appetit recipe from some years back. It is a wonderful first course, especially for those that like shrimp. The cayenne adds a nice "kick" to it as well!

      This was just what I needed to soothe my poor sick self. I stuck fairly close to the original recipe, just adding a couple carrots and two sticks of celery (I made a double batch) to pump up the veggie content. It was wonderfully comforting, had a lovely seafood flavour to it and went down a treat. I'm sure the pot won't last long!

      Ahhhh this tasted so good. I followed your instructions exactly, and the end result was a beautiful, comforting bisque. A real treat that I will be making over and over again. Thanks for sharing another great recipe. :-)

      Delightful. I made the recipe as written but reduced the amount of cayenne significantly
