      I was going to post a very similar recipe that I made from a Burt Wolf cookbook. That recipe called for a combination of dried basil, oregano and tarragon rather than all tarragon as indicated here. I also used an immersion blender and left mine kind of chunky. The bisque was just superb and a perfect treat.

      This soup is perfect! The color is beautiful a pale apricot/pink; the aroma--especially with the fresh tarragon--is lovely and the flavor is terrific. I too used my immersion blender and pureed the soup, but I did for a while to get it very smooth. I was tempted to strain it to make it even smoother, but the taste ws so good we just ATE it. I think also the fact that it was made with Chia's shrimp stock made a very big difference. Delicious, Chia!

      I was unable to attend the tutorial as it was going on, but prepared this lovely soup yesterday. This has a wonderful flavor and color and smelled terrific! I used an immersion blender & pureed the bisque with only half of the shrimp. I floated the rest on top of the servings. I served this with a french bagette and a green salad. Thank you chia for another lovely meal. The tutorials you & Chef Kate do in the French Cooking Forum are so worthwhile and much appreciated!
