BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Fresh From Florida shows you how to make a delicious seafood dish of Florida spiny lobster bisque.

INGREDIENTS

• 1 ½ pounds cooked Florida spiny lobster meat

• 1 rib Florida celery, finely chopped

• 1 Florida carrot, finely chopped

• 1 Florida tomato, finely chopped

• 1 medium onion, finely chopped

• 2 tablespoons olive oil

• 6 cloves garlic, chopped

• 2 tablespoons fresh tarragon leaves, chopped

• 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves, chopped

• 1 bay leaf

• 8 black peppercorns

• ½ cup brandy

• ½ cup dry sherry

• 4 cups fish stock or bottled clam juice

• ¼ cup tomato paste

• ½ cup heavy cream

• 1 ½ tablespoons cornstarch

• 2 tablespoons water

• Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

PREPARATION

• Slice cooked lobster meat into medallions, reserving a few slices for garnish. Coarsely chop remaining slices; cover and chill. In a 6-quart stockpot sauté the vegetables, garlic, herbs, and peppercorns in oil over medium-high heat until soft. Carefully add the brandy and sherry; simmer until most of the liquid is evaporated.

• Add the fish stock and simmer uncovered for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Strain the stock into a large saucepan; discard remaining solids. Add tomato paste and simmer for 10 minutes until stock is reduced to 3 cups of liquid. Stir in cream and simmer for an additional 5 minutes.

• Combine cornstarch and water in a small bowl and whisk into bisque. Simmer for 2 minutes, stirring, until slightly thickened. Add chopped lobster meat and simmer until lobster meat is heated through. Add salt and pepper. Serve garnished with reserved lobster medallions.
