Super Easy Shrimp Bisque Recipe (Ready in 30 Minutes!)
This is an easy bisque recipe for the newbies out there making their first seafood soup! It’s an approachable recipe that also freezes well and makes for quick and easy leftovers.
What makes this recipe so easy? The stock doesn’t need to be carefully simmered all day. All it takes is about 15 minutes to turn shrimp shells into a rich and flavourful broth that’s ready-to-go!
Can you Freeze Homemade Bisque?
Yes, you can! As long as you’re using a freezer-safe container and you let your shrimp bisque cool down beforehand, it freezes easily. This recipe can be frozen for roughly 3 months, after that you should plan your next batch!
The only secret to freezing bisque is how you reheat it. Don’t heat it too quickly, and stir it as often as you can to prevent it from separating. If you’re taking it with you for lunch, place a frozen portion of it into a soup container and let it slowly defrost until lunchtime.
How to Make This a Spicy Shrimp Bisque
We recommend using cayenne pepper in the base recipe, but if you’re looking for a spicy seafood bisque you can introduce some more kick with chili powder and paprika. The creamy flavor does well to balance it out, too!
So I think you’ll love how this Shrimp Bisque recipe incorporates making a super quick stock with your shrimp shells (and supplementing it with a little beef stock) so you can get that delicious, bold flavor without having to work too hard. Enjoy!
