I have had lobster bisque at our favorite “date night” restaurants and it is SO good. Seriously you just wish they would bring the entire pot out so you can eat it by the gallon. And so that is what I was trying to emulate here with this recipe.
And frankly while this is a soup that is going to impress. It is actually quite easy to make. You start with a base of tomatoes, shallots and other aromatics and let it simmer away. Then puree then add the lobster tails and let them cook for just a short time, remove the lobster from the crock-pot and add your cream, chop up your lobster meat and add it back in. And that really is it. You can let the soup base simmer away all day while you are at work and then do the finishing up touches before serving.
Seriously good food and seriously easy to make. Don’t be intimated!
