      This was sooo good. I already had shrimp stock in the freezer so thawed that. Made half a recipe but added ravioli. Loved all the flavor from the sherry and brandy, it really added to the onion and garlic.

      This was absolutely wonderful! I DID make some changes, so that's the only reason I gave it four stars instead of five. I doubled the recipe and pureed only about 2/3 of the shrimp mixture until smooth. I then coarsely chopped the rest of the shrimp and added to the bisque. As lovely as the taste was, I like mine to have a bit of a bite. So I added a few shakes of vindeloo powder. That put it over the top and it was AWESOME! Yum. Will be making it again.
