Crab and Shrimp Seafully Creamy Bisque:


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped celery
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 8 ounces crab meat
  • 4 to 8 ounces small cooked shrimp (or other seafood)
  • Optional: Sherry for flavor enhancement


  1. Cook Vegetables: In a Dutch oven or large saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add the green onion and celery, and sauté until they are tender and aromatic.
  2. Make the Roux: Sprinkle the flour over the cooked vegetables, stirring to blend. Continue to cook for about 2 minutes, making sure to stir continuously to prevent burning. This creates the base that will thicken your bisque.
  3. Warm the Milk: Heat the milk in a separate saucepan over medium heat until just warm. This helps integrate the milk without causing it to curdle.
  4. Combine and Thicken: Gradually add the warmed milk to the vegetable and flour mixture, stirring constantly. Continue to cook and stir until the mixture thickens.
  5. Add Flavor and Cream: Stir in the black pepper, tomato paste, and heavy whipping cream, mixing until fully incorporated.
  6. Blend for Smoothness: For a smoother texture, optionally puree the mixture in a blender or with a hand blender until smooth, then return it to the saucepan.
  7. Add Seafood: Gently stir in the crab meat and shrimp. If you have sherry on hand, add a splash for an extra layer of flavor. Bring the bisque to a simmer, careful not to boil.
  8. Serve Warm: Serve your bisque hot, garnished with extra green onion, herbs, or a swirl of sour cream if desired..
