Ingredients:

  • 4 cups seafood stock or chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine (optional)

  5. Season the bisque with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the seasoning as needed.
  6. Add the cooked crabmeat and shrimp to the bisque, and simmer for an additional 2-3 minutes, until the seafood is heated through.
  7. Remove the bay leaf from the bisque and discard.
  8. Ladle the seafood bisque into bowls, garnish with chopped fresh parsley, and serve hot with crusty bread or oyster crackers on the side.
  9. Enjoy the rich and indulgent flavors of this Seafood Bisque with Crab and Shrimp, perfect for a special occasion or a cozy night in.
