“Source: Adapted from original recipe from HeidiSue on I just love Lobster Bisque, and I am willing to pay $12 - $15 per bowl for an exceptional one... now I don't have to! A great lobster bisque doe not even need lobster meat! I tried HeidiSue's recipe, which was good, but then made some adjustments that made this the perfect Lobster Bisque for me. I hope you love it as much as I do!”
