Easy Shrimp Bisque

Preparing the bisque

Simmer the shrimp and vegetables in broth before putting in the blender.

You’ve just asked your party guests to sit down for the main meal when you scan the appetizers and see that you have an uneaten shrimp ring and a partly eaten veggie platter. Before these prepared treasures sit out too long, put them in the fridge so that you can give them a reprieve and save them for lunch tomorrow. With the addition of a few common ingredients, you’ll have an easy and delicious bisque that compares to anything you may have enjoyed in a high end seafood restaurant. And how satisfying it will be to know that your shrimp and vegetables have not gone to waste.
