Seafood Bisque

Seafood Bisque
with shrimp.
(Fiskesuppe med reker in Norwegian)

Bisque is a thick, rich creamy, seafood soup, which usually contains shellfish.

It is unlike regular fish soup, which is thinner in consistency, a lighter soup, which may contain other seafood as well. Both kinds are delicious.

This recipe serves 4-6.

24 shrimp (peeled)
1 cod fillet
1 small salmon fillet
Instead of cod fillets you can use Norwegian Fiskeboller and the stock as well.
4 cups fish stock (you can use 1 fish bouillon cube per cup to create fish stock - works great.
3/4 cup sweet cream
3/4 cup sour cream
1/3 cup white wine (can be replaced with fish stock)
2 peeled potatoes, chopped
1/4 cup onions, finely chopped
1/2-cup leeks, cleaned well and thinly sliced
1/3 cup parsley root, cut into strips
Salt and pepper to taste.

Pour stock into a soup pan.
