We skipped the chocolate and the date night this year and decided to dive head-first into a vat filled with amazing seafood for Valentine’s Day. So much seafood, in fact, that we had a ton of leftover shrimp, scallops, king crab, and lobster today. Enter this seafood bisque.
Leftover seafood is so rare in our house that whenever it does happen I immediate jump to making this bisque.
It is easy, fast, and ready in about 30 minutes.
