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.
