Cajun cuisine is one of my favorites and that's what I've been craving. I had shrimp in the freezer and half and half in the fridge. That's all I needed to get me started on this bisque. I checked out other recipes online and then I added my own spice combination and came up with a very tasty Shrimp Bisque. I was told I could sell it. Yes, it's that yummy! Inspired from Bev Cooks. Photo's are mine.
