National Seafood Bisque Day

October 19 is National Seafood Bisque Day!

With the weather starting to get chilly, the celebration of this warm, rich soup couldn’t have come at a better time.

Seafood bisque is a smooth, creamy French soup made from lobster, crab, shrimp and/or crayfish. Bisque gets its name from the phrase “bis cuites,” which means “twice cooked,” as the crustaceans used in the soup are cooked twice.

Celebrate National Seafood Bisque Day by making one of the recipes below for dinner tonight.
