I love crab bisque!

For an absolutely fantastic finishing touch to crab bisque, float a little cream sherry on top of your individual serving.

Hi again Hiram - I have a question about the crawfish bisque. The directions say to add the tailshells but it does not include instructions for removing them. I don't think I have ever had a crawfish bisque with shells in it. Can you explain? Thanks.

Thanks Karl but I'm confused now. Are you saying that you grind up the tailSHELLS? Or do you only puree the tail meat after shelling the crawfish?

You grind up the shells. We do the same for lobster abd steamed shrimp. There is a lot of flavor in the shells as well as giving the dish a really nice color.
