Bacon Lobster Bisque

This rich lobster bisque with bacon is prepared in about 20 minutes and requires less than 10 ingredients, making it one of the easiest lobster bisque options you can find, even for the lazy. A traditional lobster bisque starts with making your own broth, but this recipe skips the first step and uses clam juice, which has a similar flavor.

I can’t tell you how good it is. Why bacon? Why not? But I actually thought that every good clam chowder starts with a piece of salted pork, and I wanted to bring that flavor my way to lobster bisque, one of my favorite hot dishes to eat almost any time of the year! I know you’re going to love it, so give it a try and let me know what you think!

In case you don’t know, I’m also very proud of how these photos were taken, because sometimes (usually) the recipes aren’t as good as they are with me behind the camera. But I feel like they do justice to this recipe, which is incredibly delicious and even easy!

Ingredients

  • 3 slices of bacon
  • 1 small onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup).
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot flour
  • 1 cup mussel juice
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon tomato puree
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 ½ tablespoons sherry (do not omit)
  • 8 ounces lobster meat (defrosted, if frozen)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (or more, depending on taste)
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, add the bacon bits, then the onions and cook for 5 minutes until the onions are tender and the bacon is crisp, then remove the bacon bits (set aside), slowly add the arrowroot flour and stir for about 1 minute.
  2. Add mussel juice, broth, tomato paste and cream and bring to a boil, then lower the heat to medium-low and simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Add sherry and lobster and continue cooking for about 1 minute until lobster is heated through, then add bacon again and use a hand blender to blend. Add salt and pepper to taste or as desired.
    1. Optional: If you want a smooth sponge, you can omit the hand blender and just add lobster and bacon, but it’s recommended to blend the rich flavor of the sponge with the bacon. Try both options if you’re not sure! I love my fatty orange juice.
