Are you a seafood lover? This recipe for Easy Seafood Bisque has a fantastic flavor without spending hours in the kitchen!
Now my wife is not much of a seafood fan. She digs the occasional peel and eat shrimp or maybe some Crab Alfredo from Red Lobster, but other than that she is more a meat and potatoes kinda gal. I, however, am a HUGE lover of all things from the water. I could give you a Bubba-esque resume of all the things I love to eat that swim in our waters. That’s why today’s post is is all about seafood…and corn.
Easy Seafood Corn Bisque
- 1 can cream of mushroom soup
- 1 can tomato soup
- 4 T. Butter
- 1 C milk
- 1/4 C Sherry wine
- 1 tsp Tony Chachere's Creole Spice
- 2 T. Worchestershire Sauce
- 1 10.8 oz. package frozen corn
- 1/2 lb crab legs or 1 can lump crab meat
- 2 lobster tails
- 15-20 gulf shrimp
- 10-12 mussels garlic and white wine mussels preferably
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Bring soups, sherry, butter, milk and seasonings to a slow boil in a large saucepan or pot, stirring occasionally.
- Add frozen corn
- While stock is coming to a boil peel shrimp and remove lobster and crab from shells.
- Dice lobster into small pieces.
- Add lobster, shrimp and crab to stock and reduce heat to simmer.
- After all seafood has cooked (shrimp should be pink and lobster solid white) add mussels.
- Continue to simmer until mussels have opened.
I had some leftover snow crab legs in the freezer as well as half a package of garlic and wine mussels from a previous failed attempt at seafood cioppino. To save even more time you could just use a can of lump crab meat instead of cracking and separating the legs from their shells. The garlic and wine mussels added just a bit more flavor with the garlic, so I highly recommend them.
