    Love this soup. I have to leave out tomatoes, paprika and cayenne pepper, due to allergies, but it’s still delicious. I have made it with canned crab and canned mini shrimp, as well as large shrimp and scallops, depending on what I have on hand. I add flounder or tilapia. Any fish will add body and yumminess.

    This is the best seafood bisque I have ever had. I make this every holiday and there is never any left. It’s a little pricey to make, but well worth it.
