Shouldn't a 1.5-pound lobster weigh 1.5 pounds? We agree. That's why we sell only what we call True Weight™ lobsters. So, for example, when you order a 1.5-pound lobster, you'll get an impressive, full-size, 1.5-pounder (and often a larger one).
Maine lobster bisque for your next event. Make it an appetizer or first-course addition.
Seafood Etymology 101 The word "bisque" derives from the French, "bis cuites," meaning "twice cooked." Because crustaceans in a bisque soup are first sauteed lightly in their shells, then simmered in wine with aromatic ingredients, before being puréed. The French have a word for everything.
About preparation. We recommend you slow-thaw our lobster bisque overnight in your refrigerator. It will taste better. You could rush it. You could drop its container into boiling water for ten minutes and then this traditional French seafood concoction will be ready to serve. Ladle into a serving bowl. Add dash or two of (even inexpensive) sherry. Then drop in a small piece of crostini bread. Grate over with a little cheese. You're off to the races.
