Seafood bisque is a creamy, creamy, and highly seasoned soup of French origin. Recipes call for a strained broth of crustaceans. Use seafood such as lobster, crab, shrimp, or crayfish.

As in the Bay of Biscay, Biscay's name "Bisque" is likely derived from Biscay. However, the crustaceans are certainly bis cuites, implying "twice-cooked." Cooks must first sauteed the seafood lightly in their shells, simmered in wine or cognac, and aromatic herbs before being strained.

This rich and filling soup goes well with a crusty piece of bread. Serve it as the start of a larger meal or the meal itself. Try Gewurztraminer with your bisque if you like wine.
