Very Easy Seafood Bisque

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by KadesMom

I make this every Christmas because my whole family requests it. It's SO flavorful and tastes outstanding. This is a great comfort food as well as a zesty, creamy meal perfect for entertaining. I use canned crabmeat and it's great. I found that adding salt makes it too salty.

Quick, Simple and delicious. Loved it -- however, I am not a big pepper fan, I used 1/2 a pepper. I also like my bisque creamy so before adding the seafood (I used crab and shrimp) I used my hand blender to 'puree' the veggies in it. Loved the taste of the alfredo and tomato with the seafood. Was a hit at home and at work.
