"This makes a to die for super rich seafood bisque, chocked full of seafood such as shrimp, crab, salmon, clams and cod and is lower carb than most,due to no potatoes. Hint for low carbers: use Wondra "instant flour" and all you will need is about 1 or 2 TBS to thicken. The original recipe was obtained from a local restaurant."

"This recipe turned out AMAZING!! I would consider myself a level 1 intermediate cook, so I had to figure out what the heck is mince, shallots, and chicken base. Fortunately, with some help at my local health food store I found everything that I needed and followed the directions to the tee. Keep in mind this soup requires a Large pot that can hold at least 4 1/2 quarts (just in case some novice cooks wanted to know). I also added some cayenne pepper and cilantro for a little kick. It was super easy to make and tasted SUPER GOOD!"
"I WISH I could l give this more stars! Brilliancy! Perfect! I want to tell you I did NOT follow this to the tee, because I didn't have all those wonderful ingredients on hand. But I was really craving some seafood bisque. All I had was shrimp and clams. NO scallions.. only YELLOW onions, and I added mushrooms. I didn't even have Half and Half.. I substituted evaporated milk! And for the sherry I did plain white cooking wine.. but let me tell you, this is BY FAR THE BEST recipe I have tasted! Or at least followed in guidelines with. For the person who is considering using this: IF you don't have everything, it's okay! substitute! If your substitute is wonderful, the real recipe is "OH SO MUCH BETTER!""
"This is the best seafood soup I ever had!!! It's so good that it should come with a warning!!! Very addictive!!! If you love seafood, then you'll definitely love this recipe!!!"
"Absolutely delicious! I followed recipe exactly and could not have turned out any better. It is very rich and does make a lot so be sure you have some warm bodies to feed (impress!!)"
"This is a wonderful bisque. It has tons of flavor. I didn't have shrimp, so I substituted crawfish, used salmon, crab, clams and I used fat free half and half. This is a very forgiving recipe, it is delicious regardless of changes. I will make again. For some reason mine did not thicken well, hopefully I can do it correctly next time. Awesome recipe!!"
"This was OK, but not something I would make again. It was fun to make but the taste is too rich and too fishy, the can of baby clams was especially gross looking."
"I thought that this recipe was very quick to put together, and a potential great use for a variety of seafood and fish. I served the bisque with warm italian bread and it was enjoyed by all!"
"This is one luxurious dish - So rich and delicious. I am making another pot as soon as I exercise the last one off!!"
"This is better than any I have eaten anywhere. It is well worth the effort to make, and you can make with any fish and shell fish available. Don't be shy about adding any fish and shell fish that is fresh or canned, I used fresh oysters with great results !!! It is a keeper than my family has asked for again and again."
"This recipe was exactly what I was looking for. My husband had eaten seafood bisque while on a business trip and raved about it. I found this recipe and decided to give it a try. It is absolutely delicious and it's easy to make too."
