Low-Carb Seafood Bisque
I made the recipe I found online for low-carb seafood bisque this morning. I used a pint of crab meat, a pint each of oysters and shrimp. I used a little more chicken stock than it called for, a little more cooking wine (I couldn't find sherry so I got a dry white), and a little nutmeg. It was good, but not good enough to make again considering how expensive it was. I really like Cambell's New England Clam Chowder. But it isn't low-carb. I wanted to be able to get my fish in (I hardly ever eat fish three times in the same week) and hoped I would really like the bisque. I think it would be way cheaper to make pasta tuna salad more often. It is fairly inexpensive and I like it better. Also, I don't have to drive to south Alabama to get the ingredients. Anyway, it said it made 8 to 10 servings. I ate a bowl for lunch and put 8 more containers in the refrigerator. Maybe I can talk Larry into eating some of it.
