This terrific recipe for Lobster Bisque was submitted by Joyce Williams of New Haven, Connecticut.
1 medium onion chopped fine (shallots may be used)
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1 (11-ounce) can frozen lobster meat (or fresh lobster meat can also be used. I use more as I like a lot of lobster in my bisque.)*
3/4 cup sherry (do not use cooking sherry)
3 cups light cream
2 tablespoons tomato paste for color
- Sauté onions in butter until onions are clear 2 to 3 minutes.
- Stir in flour with a whisk and stir well until smooth Add chicken broth and pepper; cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. Add lobster meat and cook 20 minutes, or until done, on medium-low heat.
- Blend in sherry, cream and tomato paste. Absolutely delicious!
Makes 6 servings.
*If using fresh lobster, reduce cooking time to about 5 minutes or until done.
