Summer Cravings ... Lobster Bisque Low Cal & Low Fat!

The summer for me means fresh seafood and lots of it! Recently I have been addicted to Hungry Girl and her daily emails. This Lobster Bisque recipe is hot off the press from today's email. It caught my eye and my goodness it looks delicious and its healthy!

Here is what you need for 2 servings...
  • 2 cups seafood or fish stock
  • One 4-oz. uncooked lobster tail, halved lengthwise (shell halves intact), deveined
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup peeled and chopped carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 tsp. chopped garlic
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. fat-free plain powdered nondairy creamer
To make ...
Add 1/2 cup stock to a medium nonstick pot. Bring to medium heat. Once boiling, add halved lobster tail. Cover and cook for about 3 minutes, until shell halves have turned red and lobster is cooked through.
Remove lobster tail halves. To the pot, add onion, carrots, celery, tomato paste, and garlic. Stir well.
Add remaining 1 1/2 cups stock and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for about 20 minutes, until veggies are soft.
Meanwhile, remove lobster meat from the shell and chop into small pieces. Discard shell.
Remove pot from heat and stir in powdered creamer. Let slightly cool. Transfer to a blender and puree until smooth.
Pour pureed mixture into the pot, and stir in lobster. Bring to desired temperature and enjoy!
