Crockpot Monday : Lobster Bisque

Lobster is one of those foods that I get to eat once in a blue moon. It just screams decadence to me and you know what? Every once in a while, you deserve a treat and this is the perfect easy dinner that will hopefully make you feel as if you're the queen or king of the ball!

Lobster Bisque:

3 cups chicken broth
8 ounces clam juice
14.5 ounces stewed tomatoes
8 ounces sliced mushrooms
1 onion, diced
1 large leek, diced (just the white part!)
1 Tablespoon dried parsley
2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning mix
1 teaspoon dill
1 cup heavy cream (to add later)
2 lobster tails (to add later)
lemon slices as garnish, and to squeeze in at the end


Use a 5 quart or larger crockpot, and combine the broth, clam juice, tomatoes, onion, mushrooms, leek, parsley, Old Bay, dill, and parsley.

Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, high for 4-5, or until onions are translucent and flavors have melded.

Use an immersion blender to blend into a chowdery broth or very carefully add it to a traditional blender and blend before adding it back into the crockpot. Add lobster tails. Cover and cook on high for 30-45 minutes, or until lobster tails have turned pink and the meat is fork tender. Remove lobster tails from crockpot. Stir in heavy cream.

Ladle into dishes, and serve with lemon slices and lobster meat. You can take the meat out of the tail, and mix it in the soup, or leave it intact and pick at it at the table. 

I cannot wait to put this on the menu! My birthday is coming up so that just might be the perfect time!
