Shrimp Bisque-Elegant and Easy

Updated on August 5, 2014

I grew up eating all types of delicious seafood dishes. It was normal for our family to munch on steamed blue crabs, raw oysters or fried clams but one of my favorite seafood dishes has always been Shrimp Bisque.

Now there are some recipes that take a lot of effort and may have been made by a famous chef, but not mine. I like a quick and simple recipe that I can put together for a family dinner or a house full of guests.

This Shrimp Bisque will have everyone believing that you are the best chef ever and you spent all day preparing this dish for them. Enjoy this easy recipe and all of the compliments that will go with it!
