Recipe: Prawn Bisque

Love Lobster Bisque but find it too expensive? Why not make your very own yummy Prawn or Shrimp Bisque instead? When buying prawns, try & get those with roe. The soup tastes even richer.

200g Bulla thickened cream

1 tbs oil
1tbs butter
Parsely (chopped)
Salt & pepper

1. Wash & boil the fish bone to prepare stock.

2. Shell & devein prawns, reserving shells & heads. Chop the prawns.

3. Heat oil & cook the shells/heads till pink & set aside.

4. Heat butter & fry the onion & carrots till soft & add them into shells.

5. Add paste, parsley & stock & simmer uncovered for about an hour.

6. Strain mixture by pressing gently down to extract liquid. Discard vegetables & shells.

7. Return liquid to pot & stir in cornflour with cream. Stir over medium fire till thickened.

8. Add prawns, wine & season to taste & serve piping hot.
