  • Peel and dice the base ingredients - carrots, shallots and garlic cloves. Brown everything in a pan with a drizzle of olive oil.

  • Remove the shell from the lobster then cut the head in half. Put it in the pot. Deglaze everything with white wine.

  • Then add half a tomato, tomato pulp, thyme, a bay leaf and mix well. Cover the ingredients in the pot with water and cook for 40 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, prepare a roux. Melt butter in a saucepan then add flour little by little until you obtain a thick paste. When the 40 minutes are up, pass everything through a colander over another saucepan. Incorporate the roux while heating everything up.

  • Gradually boil the mixture then pour in the cream while whisking. Bring to a boil for about 10 minutes, taking care to stir occasionally so that the bisque reduces and thickens.


  • Upon serving, add pieces of lobster meat to the bowl and garnish with leaves of parsley.

Bon Appetit!
