That is a staggering amount of cream and butter! Traditonal French Lobster Bisque has only a touch of cream. The stock is made from the boiled lobster shell and the soup is thickened with ground lobster shell. It contains carrot, thyme, parsley, bay leaf, onion, white wine, Maderia or sherry, brandy, roux, a little butter a little cream or milk to finish the soup. I love Lobster Bisque. Sometimes we make Crayfish Bisque-lovely. Shanti/Mary-Anne

where are you getting your lobster with roe? I thought harvesting female lobsters with eggs was illegal. :)
