National Seafood Bisque Day

It’s National Seafood Bisque Day! Seafood bisque is a delightfully rich and creamy soup made with lobster, crab, shrimp, or crayfish. It is often seasoned with wine or cognac and a savory bouquet of spices. In a traditional bisque recipe, the soup is thickened with a fine purée of crustacean shells! Early recipes also occasionally called for pigeon instead of shellfish.

Some culinary historians believe that the word “bisque” comes from the French “bis cuites,” meaning “twice cooked.” Bisque is heated twice—first in the stock and again in the cream. Others believe that the origin of this word is related to the Bay of Biscay. Dishes from Biscay traditionally include spices similar to those in bisque.

To celebrate National Seafood Bisque Day, try making your own seafood bisque! Serve it with a freshly baked baguette for a decadent treat.
