Luxurious Lobster Bisque

Healthy Fact of the Day

Lobster is an excellent source of lean protein, providing essential amino acids for muscle growth and repair. It's also rich in vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin B12, zinc, and copper, which support a healthy nervous system and immune function. However, lobster bisque is often high in calories and saturated fat due to the butter and heavy cream, so it's best enjoyed in moderation as part of a balanced diet.

Ingredients

 

  • 2 lb cooked lobster meat, chopped
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup dry sherry
  • 4 cups seafood stock
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Fresh chives, chopped, for garnish

 

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat.

  2. Add the chopped onion, celery, and garlic. Sauté for 5-7 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened and fragrant.

  3. Stir in the flour and tomato paste, cooking for 2-3 minutes to create a roux and cook off the raw flour taste.

  4. Deglaze the pot with the dry sherry, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pot.

  5. Gradually pour in the seafood stock, whisking constantly to prevent lumps from forming.

  6. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until slightly thickened.

  7. Stir in the chopped lobster meat, heavy cream, paprika, cayenne pepper (if using), salt, and black pepper.

  8. Simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.

  9. Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed.

  10. Serve the luxurious lobster bisque hot, garnished with chopped fresh chives.
