Craving a hearty soup with a bit of the coast? Fill up with a bowl with this delicious crock pot creamy lobster bisque! It’s such a rich flavor and so fast and easy to make!
We rarely find ourselves having lobster for dinner…It’s unfortunate because my family loves it! I, on the other hand, detest seafood. Other than tuna fish from a can, if it once swam, sat, or played in the water, it’s not going near my mouth.
This week, however, I sucked it up and made a quick and easy Crock Pot Creamy Lobster Bisque with sherry. The house dwellers LOVED it! In fact, they want to do seafood more often. (and as long as it tastes like this, this is one recipe that I can actually get behind)
Ingredients needed to make Creamy Lobster Bisque Soup
- fresh parsley
- Old Bay Seasoning
- chicken broth
- heavy cream
For this recipe, I used thawed frozen lobster. I also left out veggies like diced tomatoes. Feel free to add those or use fresh lobster if you choose. If your family has a favorite fish other than the lobster, you can use that, too. Halibut and haddock make good substitutes.
You can also make this bisque extra special by decorating the top with green onion wisps and a carrot slice cut into a decorative shape. I don’t have the time to get fancy, but my grandmother used to serve her soups with a little extra TLC.
I find that everyone time I make this simple lobster bisque recipe, it’s truly a hit for the kids. If you’re looking for a simple lobster recipe, you’re going to love this great choice. Enjoy!
