NATIONAL SEAFOOD BISQUE DAY – October 19

NATIONAL SEAFOOD BISQUE DAY

Every year on October 19th, National Seafood Bisque Day serves up a hot, delicious meal for seafood lovers. The day celebrates a luxurious bowl of tasty soup made from the catch of the day! 

Seafood bisque is a smooth, creamy, and highly-seasoned soup of French origin.  Recipes call for a strained broth of crustaceans. Use seafood such as lobster, crab, shrimp, or crayfish.

The name “Bisque” is likely derived from Biscay, as in the Bay of Biscay. However, the crustaceans are certainly bis cuites, meaning “twice-cooked.” Recipes require cooks to first sauteed the seafood lightly in their shells, then simmered in wine or cognac and aromatic herbs before being strained.

This rich and filling soup goes well with a crusty chunk of bread. Serve it as the introduction to a larger meal or the meal itself. If you enjoy wine, try Gewurztraminer with your bisque.
