Deconstructed Lobster Bisque
60 mins (prep 15, cooking 45)
20 ingredients
6 servings
From The Cook's Book of Intense Flavors, Ch.3 Complex Creations: The delicacy of lobster offers a rich taste that goes well served with a rich accompaniment--cream (though it's often butter). The cream smooths out the lobster flavor without obliterating it. Smoked paprika has a deep, intense flavor that makes this combination both complex and delicious. Pull out this rich, flavorful soup for special occasions. For a twist on the lobster bisque, serve it in coffee cups, topped with frothed milk (use and immersion blender), call it "lobster cappuccino" that's sipped from a cup. Don't be intimidated by buying whole lobster! Get your money's worth by saving and/or freezing the shells for stock! If you can't use whole lobster, you can use shrimp instead for a less expensive alternative. (picture is w/out bisque poured around it yet)
