Sand between my toes, wind-blown hair, sunburned shoulders, and decadent lobster bisque. These are all things that remind me of summer family vacations on Cape Cod. What’s not to love about butter, cream, and lobster!? They are a few of the best flavor combinations around. This easy, delicious, and decadent soup will transport you back to some of the best days you ever spent by the ocean.
Savoring the memories and lobster bisque
Our senses have a way of conjuring up memories that we want to hold close to our hearts forever. It could be a song we hear on the radio that reminds us of the moment we fell in love or a photo that brings us right back to that moment we were sitting on our grandmother’s lap having cookies and milk in the kitchen together. Remember the smell of your first new car?! For me, the taste of lobster bisque transports me back to the summers we spent as a family in Cape Cod where all our worries and stresses of everyday life melted away.
In Cape Cod, we would spend hours on the beach every day swimming, collecting shells, and making sandcastles. There was always an evening after a long and glorious day on the beach that we would all clean up and go out to dinner together. Without fail, I would order the lobster bisque. It would come out steaming with warm sourdough bread and creamy butter to go along with it. The flavor combinations were unlike any other and they had an incredible way of making me feel comforted and satisfied from the inside-out.
Keeping the memories alive
To this day, when I have Lobster Bique I am transported to the beach in Cape Cod. It’s a little slice of heaven I hold near and dear to my heart.
Recently, my in-laws shared a Lobster Bisque recipe with me that was given to them by a friend. I love the simplicity of it. I took that recipe and elevated it, just a tad, to make it my own. My recipe is very reminiscent of the lobster bisque I remember having on vacation. Butter, cream, lobster, and a splash of sherry marry together in a way that makes you want to keep filling your bowl and start making plans for your next trip to the beach.
I hope you enjoy this Lobster Bisque recipe as much as we do here on the farm. If you’re looking for more delicious soup recipes, be sure to try these:
