Seafood Bisque

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

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

It is similar to fish soup, but it is thinner in consistency. Fish soup may contain a greater variety of seafood as well. There seem to be no rules about what you can add to fish soup and still call it that. Both fish soup and bisque are delicious.

Seafood bisque is a great meal to bring to a potluck get together or to make your lunch very special, serve a cup of Bisque with a sandwich or a salad.

Serves 4

24 shrimp (peeled)
1/2 small cod fillet
1/2 small salmon fillet
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
2 peeled potatoes, chopped
1/4 cup onions, finely diced
1/2-cup leeks, cleaned well and thinly sliced
1/3 cup parsley root, cut into thin strips
Salt and white pepper to taste.

Pour the stock into a soup pan.
Add vegetables and bring to a boil.
When vegetables are done
Turn to simmer
Add white wine
Add seafood
Cook medium heat until fish is flaky.
Add chives, retain some for garnish.
When seafood is done add sour cream.
Continue simmering while stirring gently.
Add cream and remove from heat.

Let the soup rest and garnish with chopped fresh chives or parsley before serving.

Sliced baguettes with herb butter goes great with this bisque. Of course, freshly out-of-the-oven crispy garlic bread is nice also. Your imagination is the limit.

I hope you will enjoy this delicious, creamy seafood bisque.
