Sherry and lobster are a classic flavor pairing; here, cream sherry lends the bisque a slightly sweet complexity. For richer flavor and more intense color, use a female lobster. (Read the Test Kitchen post to learn how to tell the sex of a lobster).
Make Ahead Tips
The bisque and lobster garnish can be refrigerated separately for up to 1 day. Reheat over medium-low heat before serving.
Begin the meal with Mixed Greens with Goat Cheese & Orange-Fennel Seed Vinaigrette.
Stunningly good bisque. Reliable. Repeatable. Memorable. Superb balance of lobster, herbs, wine and sherry. Follow this recipe to a T and you cannot go wrong. Thank you and Amen on any search for a great bisque. I have made half dozen time to wonderful reviews from some very good cooks.
Delicious bisque. Made with stock from a previous lobster dinner. It still took lots of time - about 2 hours to make including some time to boil lobster tails for the meat. This along with a salad made for a great dinner. Will make again.
