HOW TO MAKE CRAB AND SHRIMP SEAFOOD BISQUE

Step 1: Use a sieve to sift the flour.

Step 2: Place the veggies and butter in a small mixing bowl. Add in the sifted flour and use your hands to mix until the veggies are evenly coated.

Step 3: Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Once hot, cook the coated veggies for approximately 2 minutes.

Step 4: Heat milk in a different saucepan over medium heat until warm and thick, stirring often.

Step 5: Stir in the tomato paste, fresh ground black pepper, and heavy cream until incorporated. Puree the soup in a food processor for better results and place it back into the saucepan. Adjust the heat to low.

Step 6: Add in the shrimp followed by sherry wine, optional, and crab. Stir until combined and continue to simmer until cooked through.

1. If desired, add lobster and scallops.

2. Substitute green onions with chopped shallots.
