KID NOTE: The kids really liked the flavor of this soup.
VEGETARIAN TIP: Skip the lobster and use vegetable stock and you’ll have fabulous tomato bisque.
GLUTEN MODIFICATIONS: Make sure your Worcestershire sauce is gluten free.
I made this with crab and seafood stock- wow!!! It tasted amazing! However, this is not for the budget OR calorie conscious, lol. Plus, it was challenging to find the two main ingredients… perhaps because I live in the desert… Anyhow, I used really good ingredients (the crab was the most expensive thing i have EVER bought at the grocery store – but it was wild caught, lump crap meat… I couldn’t find anything else to use) which I believe put this over the top. We felt so fancy- but I likely won’t make again except for a special occasion. Definitely never made anything like this before!
Is there more than 3 cloves of garlic used? I notice it says to crush it in the list of ingredients, but it says to remove in step 7.
You could use more than 3 cloves if you want. Lay the cloves on a cutting board and use the side of a knife and crush (smash flat) them. Then remove them before serving – no one wants to bite into a huge clove of garlic. 🙂
Made it tonight and it was really good, pricey, good for special occasions but very yummy! I also used crab, only thing I might do different it thicken it up a bit!
I was only able to find shrimp bouillon cubes. I’m guessing to just use one cube?
Yes. One cube should be perfect.
