2 Shallots
1 tsp. Minced Garlic
14.5 oz. Diced Tomatoes
6 oz. Tomato Paste
32 oz. Seafood Stock
1/2 c. Water
2 tsp. Tarragon
2 tsp. Thyme

I love making Slow Cooker Lobster Bisque when I’m entertaining or having a special dinner at home.  Sometimes my honey and I “divide and conquer” – he’ll grill steaks and I’ll make the bisque and salad.  It always makes for a delicious dinner.

  1. Place butter in a skillet over medium heat.
  2. Mince shallots.
  3. As butter starts to melt, add shallots and  sautee.  Next, add garlic and cook for just 1-2 minutes.  Make sure the heat is no higher than Medium so you do NOT burn the garlic! (If you accidentally burn the garlic, pitch it and start over!)
  4. Add shallots (onion) and garlic mixture to a 5-Quart slow cooker.
  5. Pour seafood stock into slow cooker.
  6. Next add seasonings: Tarragon, Thyme, Pepper & Paprika to the slow cooker.
  7. Cover. Cook on Low for 6 hours or on High for 3 hours.
  8. Use an immersion blender to slightly puree soup to your preferred texture. Cover with lid again and turn heat to HIGH.
  9. Cut the lobster tails in half and remove flesh.  Discard tails and cut off any veiny pieces from the flesh.  Chop into bite-sized pieces. (Note: You can also freeze the lobster tails and make your own seafood stock another day!)
  10. Add lobster pieces to the slow cooker.
  11. Cover and Cook on HIGH for 20 minutes or until the meat is cooked through.
  12. Stir heavy cream into the soup.
  13. Serve in individual bowls.  Top with 1/2 oz. sherry in each bowl, if desired.

So So Good! Enjoy

Happy Crocking!

this is the recipe i always use, but it is different. What happen to the Old Bay seasoning? and making the stock as part of the process. I am really upset that this has changed. If the old recipe is around, please send it to me ASAP.
