I really don't remember where I got this recipe. But I know I have had it for a very long time. I find it the most richest Lobster Bisque I have tried. To serve I swirl a little bit of sherry or brandy on top..absolutely wonderful. It is a lot of work to do but I find it so worth it. I have made it so many times that I really don't find it too time consuming.....just so worth the compliments that come with it. Time stated does not include cooking lobster if you get fresh. Personally I buy it cooked for me at the Market.
