Luxury Lobster Bisque Recipe

A rich and creamy Lobster Bisque perfect for a special occasion or a cosy night in.





  • Step 1.

    Begin by heating a large pot over medium heat. Add the butter until melted. Stir in the chopped onion, celery, and carrot. Cook until they are softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Step 2.

    Add the garlic to the pot and cook for another minute until fragrant.
  • Step 3.

    Stir in the tomato purée and flour to the vegetables, cook for 2 minutes.
  • Step 4.

    Gradually pour in the white wine, scraping any bits off the bottom of the pot. Allow to reduce slightly, about 3 minutes.
  • Step 5.

    Add the seafood stock, bay leaves, thyme, and lobster shells. Bring to a simmer and cook, uncovered, for 1 hour.
  • Step 6.

    Strain the broth through a fine mesh sieve into a separate pot, pressing on the solids to extract as much liquid as possible. Discard the solids.
  • Step 7.

    Return the pot to a low heat and stir in the cream, paprika, and cayenne pepper. Cook for 5 minutes.
  • Step 8.

    Chop the lobster meat and add it to the soup, cooking just until heated through, about 5 minutes.
  • Step 9.

    Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve hot, garnished with fresh parsley if desired.
