I think I’ve decided that Fall is my favorite time of the year. For this South African girl, American Fall temperatures are just about the same as South African winter temperatures (in the area that I’m from at least).

Seeing that winter is my favorite season back home, Fall will be my favorite season over here.

And take a wild guess what my favorite food for this time of the year is? It’s an easy one. Yep. Sooouuuup.

Rustic Lobster Bisque

Kicking off “Soup Season 2016“ is this hearty Rustic Lobster Bisque. 

It is definitely my favorite seafood soup and oh so comforting. Nothing quite as special as a creamy lobster soup.

This delicious rich and creamy bisque recipe is perfect for any leftover red lobster you might have and is a quick throw-together recipe that requires no blending.

Instead of using that precious extra time to blend, we just call it “rustic”. It’s a pretty good technique and so very gourmet!

It still has that classic lobster bisque taste, so don’t worry about that! It’s also a Keto and Low-Carb approved recipe so no guilty feelings whatsoever. 

You can also easily transform this soup into a healthy Whole 30 Paleo Lobster Soup recipe by using coconut cream instead of whole cream.

A creamy tomato base filled with lots of little vegetables and yummy lobster chunks. All it needs is a bit of chopping and barely 30 minutes of simmering on the stove. No excuses for skipping out on this one. No sir!

Homemade Rustic Lobster Bisque. You know you want it. Resistance is futile.

Tips and Tricks:

1. We like to leave the Lobster Bisque as is. We love a “chunkier” soup with a bit of bite to it. 
2. If preferred, you can also remove the lobster, blend half the soup and mix everything together again. 
3. You can also remove the lobster, blend everything smooth and then add the Lobster back in.

    1. Hi Christina! I think is should be fine without the white wine. It adds subtle flavor, but nothing drastic.

  1. Hello! I stumbled upon your recipe and would love to try it as I am a huge fan of lobster bisque. I have never wanted to make it because most recipes call for the extra step of using the immersion blender which I don’t have. I noticed in your recipe this isn’t required but I had a question as to when to add the cream in. If the cream is added and left to boil/simmer, wont it curdle?
