Lobster Bisque With Greek Style Yogurt

Life should always be filled with joy and lobster, which is why we’re ecstatic to bring you our divine Lobster Bisque With Greek Style Yogurt! Fresh and succulent lobster meat resting in an oasis of diligently prepared bisque, this dish is sea-ductively elegant and heavenly tasting. We advise not sharing as everyone gets a little shellfish once they’ve tasted this.
Once the lobster has been prepared, following the rest of the recipe is a breeze. Don’t underestimate that few drops of brandy, just a hint of it enough to incorporate that sweet flavour and subtle pleasant scent to the bisque. Although chicken stock is used, it does not overpower the flavours but instead acts as a base to bring out that savoury richness of the lobster.
