    So will the recipe work similarly with lobster shells if I’ve got a bunch on hand? Any potential differences or pitfalls if I’m using lobster shells? We had lobster New Year’s Eve and I froze everyone’s shells and took them home with me in my stockpot. They’ve been sitting in my chest freezer since.

    Oh my goodness, this bisque is a “must make” recipe for sure. Now I feel terrible that I’ve been throwing away crawdad shells for year. Love all the components and that they can be made separately and ahead of time!

    This looks wonderful. Must remember to return to it in warmer weather as on my wish list for this year is a camping trip to a spot on the River Windrush (near the Cotswolds where I live)where I’ve heard the wild swimming is great but there are plenty of crayfish to catch too. Thanks for spurring me on with your lovely recipe.

    This is one of those moments that I wish they had smellavision. I love a good bisque and I love crayfish. My New Years resolution was to catch and eat more crayfish this year and I know what I am starting with. Do you know if its possible to trap them in the winter? I may not be able to wait until spring.

    What a lovely bisque! Crawfish season is just beginning in south Louisiana, though we’re lucky to get frozen year round. I make a roux-based Louisiana style bisque studded with boulettes or stuffed crawfish heads: http://bouillie.us/2010/12/24/christmas-crawfish-bisque/
    Sure wish I had a bowl of your bisque right now.
