Seafood Bisque



A seafood bisque is a rich, smooth thick and creamy soup that originated from the French.

The thicknesses of this Bisque are made from vegetables and cooked rice.

The vegetables and rice are being cooked separately. When the vegetables are quite soft and tender it is put through a food processer to create a puree extracting every bid of flavour possible. This forms the base of the Bisques.

Also, the shells of mussels, clams, lobster, crab and/or crayfish are first roasted and crushed and ground into a fine paste to further flavour the Bisque.

Vegetables are pureed, as with the imperfect crustaceans which are not good enough for the markets.


A Basic Bisque Dis

Sometimes I put the fish-meat itself through the food processor and sometimes I don't. It all depends on the mood of the occasion. Traditional Bisques are often thickened with Roux., but I personally don’t make any Roux the traditional way.

Additionally, although classic bisque is made only with shellfish, some thick soups made with vegetables, poultry or meat is sometimes referred to as Bisques.

A typical Seafood Bisque is appreciated more on cold or winter nights.

Garlic bread or bread sticks are also a favourite with this dish. But nothing stops you from flavouring the bread or bread sticks with cheese, chillis or lemon and herbs.

Salty-cracks or other salty biscuits also flames the taste of this dish quite well thank you...

...and if you’re one of those people that just cannot go without your chillis, well here is a good reason to create this dish into a perfect curry, Peri-Peri or an ordinary chillis Seafood Bisque
