Seafood bisque is a smooth and creamy, highly seasoned soup which is of French origin. Based on a strained broth of crustaceans, it is made from lobster, crab, shrimp or crayfish.
It is believed that the name “Bisque” derived from Biscay, as in Bay of Biscay, however the crustaceans are certainly bis cuites, meaning “twice cooked”, as they are first sauteed lightly in their shells, then simmered in wine and aromatic ingredients before being strained.
