Day 92- Lobster Bisque


December 21, 2012 by chicagogrilling365

027Tuesday night Kurt and I had a fabulous dinner at his restaurant with a few of our friends. Afterwards we went to Jewel to grab items for grilling.

I, of course, forgot to use the bathroom at the restaurant and had to pee as soon as we got to Jewel. When I came out of the bathroom I had a hard time locating Kurt.

In the process of searching for him I found a bag of frozen lobster claws and thought they would be great for lobster mac n cheese or soup.

I was busy Wednesday with shopping, cleaning and wrapping gifts. My mind was set on doing lobster bisque for dinner so I went back to Jewel to grab a few things. For the bisque I needed more butter, heavy whipping cream, onion and bread.

025While I was there I grabbed a few more grilling items for the next couple of days: mixed greens, a small ribeye and a pair of Cornish hens.

I thawed out about a pound of lobster claws, which took about two hours. I began making my bisque while the coals got hot; the claws only needed a couple of minutes on the grill.

026I also wanted some buttery toasted french bread for dipping. I cut about ten pieces and popped them in the oven with butter, oil and salt.

Once the claws were hot and ready I pulled the meat out and mixed it into the bisque. I topped it off with a whole crab claw and some Old Bay.

I wish I had picked up a little tomato paste for the bisque but it was still think and creamy!030

Thanks for reading!
