Lobster Bisque-15

Hamilton Beach BlenderLobster bisque has always been a splurge for me, but I absolutely love it!


UPDATE: The winner of the Hamilton Beach Wave Action Blender is: 

Lisa Brown: “My favorite soup is corn chowder.”

Congratulations, Lisa!!  Be sure to reply to the email you have been sent and Hamilton Beach will send your blender directly to you! 

It’s one of those rich treats that always tempts me when on the menu and I’ve always wanted to learn how to make it.  This is my simple recipe for a fabulous bisque that would be perfect to serve guests at your next dinner party.  Most of it can actually be made the day or night before, reserving the lobster to add minutes before your serve.

My friends at Hamilton Beach recently sent me their new Wave Action Blender and it worked perfectly for this recipe. I loved it’s easy-pour spout, which made it perfect to pour the soup back into the pot after it was blended.  I also loved it’s simple, clean lines and sleek design on the counter.  It doesn’t take up very much space, so it makes it easy to leave out and use on a daily basis.

Lobster Bisque-6Hamilton Beach would love to send one of you a Wave Action Blender, too!

Lobster Bisque and Hamilton Beach Giveaway!!


  • 3 celery stalks, diced
  • 3 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 12 oz. tomato paste
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 qt. lowfat half and half
  • 3/4 cup dry Sherry
  • 1/2 pint heavy cream
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme, plus extra for garnish
  • 3 cups diced, cooked lobster (I used 3 lobster tails that I broiled and then diced)
  • salt and pepper


In a large pot, saute celery, carrots, and onion in olive oil and butter. Season with salt and pepper and continue to cook until the veggies are soft and the onions are transparent. Set aside and allow to cool down until warm and not steaming hot.

Add veggies to your blender. Add tomato paste and 3/4 qt. of lowfat half and half. Blend until smooth and creamy.

Pour back into your pot and add remaining half and half, continually stirring to combine thoroughly. Bring to a low boil. Add Sherry and heavy cream, combine well and bring to a boil again.

Add fresh thyme and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Reduce to a simmer for 20 minutes. Add cooked lobster meat and continue to simmer for five to ten minutes.

Serve immediately with a few sprigs of fresh thyme.

        Daar kan ik me grotendeels in vinden. Bij C stelde ik me o.a. andere etenswaren voor. En daarnaast vind ik dat in de presentatie duidelijker naar voren had mogen komen dat hierdoor de ‘ham-kaas vraag’ nog niet beantwoord was.@Jan: OK, als het er nog eens van komt, zal ik Maria mailen.

          May 11, 2012 – 1:45 pm Good stuff here Matt, and I totally agree. I published my Author Search post on a Saturday night (what is often called a “bad time” to publish), and it went hot on HackerNews and in the Twrhetisptere because there was low competition (and well, it’s a good post).Thank you for this dose of sense.

    • Thanks for hosting! I linked my pumpkin cake and s'mores caramel apples.I also host a Tuesday linky party and would love for you to join sometime! The linky party is open through Friday. :)

    • September 25, 2012Our project before school start this year was getting the drop zone in order – having a place for back packs, papers and mail that can get cluttered every night is daunting. I’ve learned things pile up when they don’t have a place or when that place is too far out of reach. I also used a ton of these to get rid of any kids clothes that won’t be worn this year. The totes are going right to my sister and her kids. Thanks for the tips!

      I don’t have an experience of quite this significance yet, and I didn’t read this post until today. Thank you for writing such a beautiful tribute to your dad and those memories.

    • Funny, that’s the first thing I thought of when I read the story. I haven’t kept up with any of the Anna Nichole circus, so I didn’t know until I read it today. The whole story is very sad.

    • http://www./ says:

      222 kettleI agree with you – was just pointing out the reality, which is that the Supremes have a long history of interpreting the constitution in such a way that permits entities that have amassed quite a bit of capital to go on doing so.Frankly, this one falls into the exact same place as the interpretation of the “takings” clause – the Endangered Species Act was late to the game: there were no property rights in this country to begin with!

      Geez, that’s unibebevaell. Kudos and such.

    • Näin ihan vaikka olen vasta lukenut ”esipuheen” niin tuossa jo edellisessä aiheessa mainitsemassani hieman hömppä-dokumentissa sanottiin jotenkin niin, että ”Mikä on tärkeintä huomioida kun lähtee etsimään seuraa” ja kyseessä oli siis ohjelma jossa +50 vuotiaat naiset hakivat nuoria miehiä…”Hymyily on tärkeintä, sillä silloin sinua on helppo lähestyä.”Se ei varmaan ollut sanatarkasti edes tuonnepäin, mutta tuollainen ajatus minulle jäi mieleen siitä ohjeesta

    • Great website here! Also your internet site lots up very fast! What host have you been using? Can I buy your associate link to your host? I want my web page loaded way up as rapidly as the one you have lol

    • Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Appreciate it

    • Thank you for dropping by my blog. I appreciate the follow.Was that St. Rose of Lima church in the pictures of your first Latin Mass?God bless you in your journey! I will follow you also.

      These topics are so cosnnuifg but this helped me get the job done.

    • I’ll go first:“They have health problems, mutts are healthier.”Untrue for most responsibly-bred dogs!What are some of the most ridiculous misconceptions you’ve heard about purebred dogs? Do you think that if people knew they were wrong about certain issues, they would think differently about purebred dogs?I don’t ever recall saying that mixed breeds are horrible, do you?

    • I am sure it is funny to hear a wild bird talking as if it was a captive bird. A friend of mine has an umbrella cockatoo and she now has a cute southern draw. .I have learned so much about birds from him that someday I may even have one.

    • 嘩,好似真係掂喎。但發記會好多人嗎?其實主要係又有日劇推廌:Buzzer Beat – 山下智久、北川景子、相武紗季、貫地谷しほり、溝端淳平、伊藤英明題材… 夏日 + 愛情 + 運動頭兩集比較多打籃球場面,可 skip 掉。之後的很好看的!未完的,但襯還是夏天先看看吧!

    • This is such a pretty table. I have a pitcher that I only use for flowers too but like yours they are fake this time of year. Mine also has white daisies too. By the way a long time ago before I started blogging I was snooping around for an appetizer and found your little penguins. They were such a hit. I love them, almost too cute to eat.

    • Dr. Deb, this is quite a topic! I personally don't feel comfortable with these prcedures more for others that cannot face them than for myself. Thank you for your wisdom and "putting it out there!"So glad you received Little Bird for your niece. I hope she loves it and sees her own divine perfection in the story. Blessings to you on this Thanksgiving!

    • Dusky,Of course….About 5 years ago, there were great deal of debates (here at CDF and elsewhere) on the merit of importing the Sov class DDG instead of the Udaloy, as the PLAN's greatest deficient was in ASW. However, as the augment goes, Sovremenny's Anti-carrier capability (SS-n-22) is clearly a political message in response to the aftermath of the 1996 missile test.

    • he would call round if this didn’t work.I tried Gerry’s suggestion and my washer dryer is now working normally.It is refreshing to find someone who first tries to help, instead of making an unnecessary service visit. Thanks Jerry.

    • Thought it wouldn’t to give it a shot. I was right.

    • / Fantastic story, and I agree to the moral in a big way. For example, my girlfriend always finishes first, but I’m the winner there.Go go Neil. It will be yours some day, if you keep fighting for it.Brandon, from My Own Private Idaho recently posted..
