Lobster Bisque


  • Serves 6 to 8.


  • 6 Tablespoons butter
  • 6 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 4 Tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 3 cups cooked lobster meat, shredded
  • 1 Tablespoon paprika
  • 1 cup light cream
  • Snipped chives for garnish


Melt butter in large pot over medium heat. Stir in flour, salt, pepper, and celery salt. Whisk until well-blended. Gradually stir in milk, whisking constantly so that no lumps form, and then stir in chicken stock. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the soup begins to thicken. Add onion and lobster; season with paprika. Cook and stir for 10 more minutes. Add cream, stirring until heated. To serve, garnish with snipped fresh chives.
