A few weeks ago I got an intense craving for oh so yummy, but not so good for you, seafood bisque. I happened to be in the grocery store to pick up something, and I did something I don't often allow myself- splurged and bought the seafood for the soup right there on the spot! I love me some creamy soup.
This is one of my favorite things that I remember my dad making when I was growing up- and I still request it on Christmas Day whenever we're with my parents for Christmas. I don't know his exact recipe, but I think this is pretty close.
I made a BIG pot, so I'd have plenty to heat up for leftover lunches this week. :-)
And without delay...
Papa Jack's Seafood Bisque (as remembered by Tori)
2 Cans Cream of _____ Soup (or you can make your own!)
1 1/2 C Chicken Stock
2 C Milk
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
1 t minced garlic
6 oz each Crab, Shrimp, Scallops (or whatever you have/ whatever your spouse will eat :)
Salt and Pepper to taste
I didn't get a good picture, so you'll just have to trust me that it was great! Even Jack ate some, and he's not really a soup kind of kid.
