National Seafood Bisque Day
Food Facts on Seafood Bisque
Seafood bisque is a delightfully rich and creamy soup made with lobster, crab, shrimp, or crayfish.
Seafood bisque is often seasoned with wine or cognac and a savory bouquet of spices.
Seafood Bisque was developed as an ingenious way to extract flavor from the crustaceans that did not quite make the cut at the market.
The meat of the shellfish is puréed and added back to the soup as a thickening agent.
Seafood Bisque is cooked twice and some food historians say that the word “bisque” comes from the French “bis cuites,” meaning “twice cooked.”
