    Lalaloob's Note:

    So sometimes you just have to go the distance, take out all the stops and present a soup that gets the Ooooooooh's and Ahhhhhhhhh's. So this is it. There might be other similar bisques on zaar, no doubt, but this is one I do and though it's not my original, I think it is just luxurious. Serve up with a simple roast and a great salad.

      This is an absolutely wonderful shrimp bisque! Rich, creamy and velvety. I made it exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for sharing this wonderful bisque, Lalaloob.

      Very good recipe - I used bigger shrimp and only ground half of them up....thought I wouldn't need the lemon juice, but needed it to cut the sweetness from the vegetables. Very rich and yummy. Thanks!
