Shrimp Bisque

Hanan Hussein


I first tasted this bisque in an Italian restaurant and we liked it a lot. My husband asked me if I can make it at home and I said that I think I can make out the ingredients from the look and taste. So later that week I went to the supermarket and got what I thought would be the right ingredients. I made it and it turned out even better than the restaurant's because it doesn't have a strong fishy taste or smell.
So now with this cold weather I thought I'd share it with you all.
