I offer this more-or-less classic recipe for lobster bisque for two reasons. First, because I like it. Second, to offer a contrast with crawfish bisque, which could not be more different, even though for all the world, crawfish look like small lobsters.

Lobster bisque is essentially a dish made from leftover lobsters. Use the tail meat for an appetizer or entrée and save everything else for this. The amount of flavor you can get from those shells is astonishing.
