  • 1
    In 4-quart Dutch oven, melt butter over medium-high heat. Stir in flour. Gradually stir in broth, half-and-half and wine. Stir in bell peppers and cod. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.

    Stir in shrimp. Simmer uncovered 2 to 3 minutes or until shrimp are pink and firm. Stir in pesto, salt and pepper.

Expert Tips

  • Cooked shrimp works great in this recipe, too. Just add the shrimp to the bisque and simmer until heated through. If you use cooked shrimp, reserve 8 shrimp and tie a chive around each shrimp for an extra-special garnish.
  • As you dish up the soup, sprinkle chopped fresh basil leaves and a little freshly shredded Parmesan cheese on each serving.
