Low carb recipe for Almost Lobster Bisque which belongs to the Soups recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. cup (120 ml) heavy cream
  2. 1 cup (240 ml) half-and-half
  3. cup (120 ml) water
  4. 10-ounce (280-g) monkfish fillet
  5. cup (120 ml) dry sherry
  6. 1 teaspoons No-Sugar Ketchup or other sugar-free
  7. ketchup
  8. teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  9. teaspoon lemon juice
  10. teaspoon salt or Vege-Sal
  11. Guar or xanthan (optional)
  12. 1 scallion, finely sliced

Cooking Instructions

First combine the cream, half-and-half, and water in a large, microwaveable dish.

Microwave for 5 to 6 minutes on 70 percent power.

While the cream is heating, cut the monkfish fillet into bite-sized pieces.

Bring the sherry to a simmer in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat.

Add the monkfish, turn the heat down a little, and let the fish simmer in the sherry, stirring occasionally, for 4 to 5 minutes or until cooked through.

Stir in the cream, which should be hot by now.

Stir in the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, and salt, and heat it only to a simmer.

If you'd like your bisque thicker, feel free to use guar or xanthan, but it's mighty nice the way it is.

Ladle into dishes and top each serving with a scattering of sliced scallion.
