I think it needed something else.. I added Thyme b/c I don't use cayenne.. Dabblers mentioned Tabasco and Worcester.. good ideas. I WILL use cream next time. Perfect for shrimp to I think, poss abalone? Thanks amberngriffinco
Absolutely delicious. Used 1 cup 35% cream with 1 cup of milk instead of 2 cups of milk as suggested by another reviewer - a brilliant idea. Added an idea from other recipes namely 3 big drops of Tabasco and 1/2 teaspoon of Worcester sauces. We loved it with fresh baked rolls it only lasted for 2 and a bit serves. One word of caution. The scallops will be like bullets if cooked for 15 minutes (must be a typo). We cooked everything except scallops for 10 minutes at Step 5 then added scallops for the last 5 minutes only and they were perfect. Thanks Winni for an excellent recipe. We are going to try leek and mushroom ideas next.
Very tasty. I added half a cup of sliced mushrooms which complimented it nicely.
This was just excellent and so easy to do. I used a pound of bay scallops. Very rich and creamy tasting. Made enough for tonight's dinner too. Thanks for the post winkki
Want to make this sinfully good? I used 1 cup of light cream and 1 cup milk instead of the 2 cups milk. Higher fat but oh so creamy! I also used 1/4 cup of finely chopped leeks (white part only) instead of onions. This was easy-peasy to make was fabulous as a side to the steak and salad served for dinner.
This was so easy I am smacking myself for not making it sooner. Love the flavor from the bay, I used a shallot for the onion and bay scallops, had it for lunch with a piece of french bread, YUMMO!!!
Five stars for a creamy, rich bisque that was quick and easy to make. I enjoyed this as a side with our meal.I turned around 2 days later and made the same recipe with a bit of leftover fish I had. I will be making this simple dish over and over again.I love pepper and put just a tad more in than what was called for and I put a sprinkle of paprika on top just for presentation!
