      This is a hard one to review for me. I prepared this for our Valentine's Day dinner and while we liked it, it did not have the flavour I was expecting and it did not thicken up as much as I expected either. I thought that maybe after sitting overnight the flavours would meld, but I still felt it needed something. So, I added some more seafood to it with a flaked fillet of cooked haddock and I prepared a roux to thicken it up more as well. With these changes, it was excellent. That said, I have only had shrimp bisque once and that was at least 20 yrs ago, so I am by no means a connoisseur and my recollection may be fuzzy. As I said, we did enjoy it, and I would probably make it again adding more seafood and the roux. Thx for sharing your recipe. Made for Soup Fest 2011.

      This was very good. I loved the texture of it. I just pulsed the blender as some one else said. It was almost too salty though. I would suggest using a low sodium chicken broth. Next time I will make my own broth or get the low sodium kind. Made for ZWT 07
