I added fire roasted tomatoes to cut the sweetness of the lobster. Also found it needed a bit more lemon.

This was a HUGE hit at a party I hosted and extremely easy to make. I changed the serving size to 8, and followed the advise of Amy and used less celery - I used 8 stalks instead of the suggested 12. I did use the suggested 1 tsp of red pepper flakes and that was perfect. To cut the cost, I used imitation lobster meat and it was still incredibly delicious. After I added the meat, I used an emulsion blender to break up the veggies and meat into smaller pieces just to make it less chunky and a bit smoother. Everybody had second helpings!

The taste of this Lobster Bisque was rich, creamy and delicious!! Restaurant Quality! The only changes I would make are slight and depend on your taste...I would use HALF the amount of Red pepper flakes(a little too HOT for me) and I would use a little less celery, maybe 4 stalks instead of 6. Overall and EXCELLENT recipe!
