- 2 lobsters, about 1 ½ pounds each
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 carrots, peeled and diced
- 2 celery stalks, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- ¼ cup tomato paste
- ½ cup dry sherry
- 4 cups fish or seafood broth
- 1 cup heavy cream
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Chopped fresh chives for garnish
- Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, carrots, celery, and garlic. Sauté until the vegetables are soft and fragrant.
- Add the paprika and tomato paste, stirring to combine. Cook for an additional 2 minutes.
- Pour in the dry sherry to deglaze the pot, allowing it to simmer until slightly reduced.
- Remove the lobster meat from the shells and set aside. Add the lobster shells to the pot, followed by the fish or seafood broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 30 minutes.
- Remove the lobster shells from the broth and discard them. Use an immersion blender to carefully blend the soup until smooth.
- Return the soup to the heat and add the heavy cream. Chop the reserved lobster meat into bite-sized pieces and add them to the soup.
- Simmer the bisque for an additional 10 minutes to allow the flavors to meld. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Serve the Elegant Lobster Bisque hot, garnished with chopped fresh chives. Pair with crusty bread or oyster crackers for a delightful meal.
