Winter Seafood Bisque

It's winter time, but living in Texas it's hard to tell. With the way the weather is here, it could change in an instant. We can go from having 20 degree days with ice and snow to 70 degree days with sunshine in the matter of 24 hours. No joking. Our state is confused! But, when those much antipated 20 degree days do hit, there is nothing better then a delicious, warm bowl of seafood bisque. Whether for a family dinner, a holiday party, or even just for lunch, Louis Kemp® Crab Delights® Flake Style helps me prepare a meal that everyone will love.

Wanting to change up our traditional go to recipes for our annual holiday family lunch and to add something different for the winter months on our daily menu, I decided upon a seafood bisque made with Louis Kemp® Crab Delights® Flake Style to create a soup that hits the mark. You'll love it and it's very simple to make. Louis Kemp® Crab Delights are made with premium Wild Alaskan Pollock fillets that make a perfect addition to your bisque. Plus, Alaskan Pollock is the most abundant certified sustainable fish species. Louis Kemp® Crab Delights are are gluten-free and a good source of protein.

This bisque is perfect to cook up in a large pot to share with family and friends on cold winter nights. It makes a lot so you'll have plenty to share. Pack it up and take on the go for potlucks, luncheons, and get togethers or whatever this holiday season brings.
