Expert Tips

  • Cooked shrimp works great in this recipe, too. Just add the shrimp to the bisque and simmer until thoroughly heated.
  • As you dish up the soup, sprinkle chopped fresh basil leaves and a little freshly shredded Parmesan cheese on each serving. Or for a simple yet "showy" garnish for each serving, tie a chive around an additional cooked shrimp.
