Did we mention we’re soup crazy right now? It’s a good thing too, otherwise we never would have found this incredible recipe. Shrimp Bisque my friends is where it’s at. It’s rich but not too rich, and creamy but not too creamy. If there is ever a time to try a new recipe, this is the one to try.
If I dare say it, I like it better than lobster bisque. I always feel like a good lobster bisque is almost too rich making it difficult to enjoy a full bowl. Not with shrimp bisque. It has all the same qualities, just toned down. And I may or may not have devoured 2 full cups of this liquid gold. I have a thing for shrimp though, so that’s no shocker. Also probably why I prefer this to lobster bisque. To each there own right?
The best part is this recipe is super easy to make. We topped off our bowls with some chopped green onion, and crispy wonton strips for a much needed crunch. All the qualities of comfort food perfect for not only those cold fall/winter days, but also busy work weeks as well.
Is anyone still trying to adjust to daylight savings? Because it’s been throwing me off all week. Dinner time rolls around and I’m already feeling sluggish. It always surprises me how much of an impact sunlight has on your mental state. Because as soon as that sun sets, which is at roughly 5pm now, I immediately feel the decline of my productivity and energy. 30 minutes is how long it takes to prepare this recipe, and it’s about all time and energy I have these days for dinner. I love the Holidays so much, but if there is ever a time to be strategic with your meal planning it’s October to January 1st.
So hold onto your hats my friends, the crazy has begun, and we want to help make it less crazy. A few other easy fall recipes to keep on hand is our Slow Cooker Beef Stew, One Pot Cheesy Taco Pasta, and lastly our One Pan Brown Sugar Pork & Apples. There are so many more, so feel free to go browsing on our website. My favorite search on our blog is for 30 minute meals, we’ve got some really winners in that category.
That wraps up our post for today, but we must mention one more thing. This is yet another recipe we adapted as our own from the “Joy of Cooking” cookbooks, and if you’ve been following along you can find this recipe on page 188. Not sure what we’re talking about, head over the our Pigs in Potatoes blog post for all the details. We hope you all have an enjoyable weekend, and that you come back and visit us soon. Happy cooking friends!
