Perfect Lobster Bisque Recipe
3 tablespoons butter
¼ cup chopped fresh mushrooms
2 tablespoons chopped onion
1 (14.5 oz) chicken broth (I use clam juice)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 ½ cups heavy cream
½ cup sherry wine
½ pound cooked lump lobster meat (I used packaged)
- Melt butter in large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add mushrooms and onion. Cook and stir until tender, about 10 mins. Stir in the chicken broth (clam juice), and season with salt and cayenne pepper. Bring to a boil, and then simmer for 10 mins.
- Pour the mixture into the container of a blender and add ¼ cup of the lobster meat. Cover and process until smooth. Return to the saucepan, and stir in the half-and-half, wine, and remaining lobster meat. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently until thickened, about 30 mins.
