I need a good recipe. With the runup to newyears and all that seafood in stores, I've had a craving for a good bisque.

Any recomendations for a good white wine for the bisque (to put in). Will this benefit from a sweet wine like a good riesling or am I better off with something else?

Edit: off to find some fish heads for the broth... ::yukky face::

I would imagine this would go with lobster as well, but I know its a near religious experience with crab as written.

Don't use fish heads, use the rest of the lobster for your stock...

wine rec coming later.

Here is a dynamite recipe for lobster bisque. This is a classical French bistro recipe - as close as it gets unless you want to travel to France. If you want to substitute wine for Cognac, a Ontario riesling (Cave Spring) would work wonderfully. If you have any questions I would be more than happy to help you through the process.

3 2lb lobsters
3 tbsp olive oil
2 onions, finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, sliced
2 leeks, finely chopped
2 celery stalks, finely chopped
1 tbsp tomato paste
1/4 Cognac
6 cups of water
1 bouquet garni (bundle of parsley, thyme and a few bay leaves)
salt and pepper
2 cups heavy cream
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 tbsp chopped chives

Damn you Fredk, now I am hungry. The closest thing I might have to seafood around here is a few cans of Escargot..lol. Actually a few different takes on Escargot would be a great app for New Years Eve.

So if I choose a giant bottle, everyone will get loaded, right?

And thats the point . Should be 1/4 cup Cognac. 3/4 cup for the cook.

Then I'll pile it on. I'm munching on fresh French bred and a very nice tripple cream brie as I read.

I can't believe I didn't think of this before. ::consults Joy of Cooking::

The fish stock will be replaced by fish fumet.
