Sweet Pepper, Corn , Crab, And Scallop Bisque..Wow!



My plan was to start the Valentine's Day feast with a crab bisque..but time and amount of food, made it the next day's supper! I have always made a sweet red bell pepper and crab bisque, but saw in a cook book how sweet corn is also used in a similar dish...I had some left over scallops, and could see no reason not to utilize them in this recipe!
1. 1 can of low sodium chicken broth
2. 12oz. of half and half cream
3. 1 red bell pepper, chopped coarsely
4. 1/2 cup chopped onion
5. I can sweet corn, drained
6. 8oz of seared scallops
7. 12oz. cooked crab meat
8. Old Bay seasoning, to taste
Saute red pepper and onion in butter until cooked but still firm. Add chicken broth, half and half, sweet corn and heat on low. Add a cold water(2oz)and corn starch (3Tbs) mix to thicken broth. stir until hot and thickened, add seafood. Heat 5 min. and season with Old Bay to taste.
You will find this to be a filling, excellent bisque to enjoy with or as a meal!
P.S.- The photo of the locally made candy..Sweetlands! In business for 90 years, it is a great place- and they have a web site, if you're interested..

I'm a Godiva fan. Those do look like they're better than Russell Stover, though.

Jen- these are the real deal! When I want stale chocolates, I head for Russel Stover!

Pam said...

I love when chocolates come with that guide sheet, so you know what you're biting into. That way I make no coconut mistakes.

buffalodick said...

The success of my marriage, was that we ate different chocolates!

Jen said...

mmmm, those chocolates look delicious!

Chef E said...

You can say that title again! Sounds good, I found a site that makes your chocolate to order, have to go find the link, but they are pretty reasonable!

buffalodick said...

Jen- 21 bucks- gone in two days!
ChefE- They are home grown and for real.. No one that goes into that shop comes out empty-handed!

doggybloggy said...

awesome chocolates - you should post the website - although I do live in a place that has jacques torres as one of its residents I am happy to pay less for good quality.

Rachel said...

This may just be a new favorite at my house! I am so making this!! We love chowder!! And with scallops?! Be still my heart :)

buffalodick said...

Griller-I hate being in debt! Send me a mailing address, or my kid who lives out there will make you sorry..I will send two, as he is out of it! You could meet him this way, and he would tell you tales of Buffalo Dick..
Michelle- I hope the best for you-as well you know!
DogB- These are great! You live in food central- but we have a few good places..
Rachel- It is that good! Try it!

Oh Yeah...
I'm all about the Bisque!
Looks devine!

Just telling it like it is said...

Who doesn't love crab!!!

Akelamalu said...

I very rarely ate chocolates and never now, but MWM would love those!

Barbara said...

Do you remember Sanders? Their candy? And their almond tea rings? God I loved that candy and I think my sister would have killed for their coffeecake.
I can still find their ice cream toppings, but no other products. Wonder who is making the toppings?. A Sanders hot fudge sundae was my first introduction to manna from heaven.

Realliveman said...

Sweet Pepper, Corn , Crab, And Scallop Bisque AND Chocolate!! that deserves a double WOW!!

highlandsranchfoodie said...

I like the addition of Old Bay to that chowder. Why didn't I ever think of that. Godiva Chocolates are the very best!

Katherine Aucoin said...

The chocolates are a very unique find! The crab bisque, over the top! I'm thinking ofr that or corn and crab chowder for Friday night.

buffalodick said...

Brian- Bisque was really good..
G-man- You didn't have to look too hard for the seafood in it!
Darngirl- I know I love it!
Ake- They were nice and fresh!
Barb- I still buy their ice cream toppings!
RLM- It wasn't cheap- but worth it!
Highlander- Old Bay is great for any seafood!
Katherine- Any combo of that bisque would work!

The Blonde Duck said...

What a feast it must have been!

TavoLini said...

Oh yum! One can never go wrong with soup and chocolates!!

I'm glad you posted that recipe--that bisque sounds like something both Tavo and I would love.

A Year on the Grill said...

B-D... I sent you a couple emails... I am leaving for ST Thomas in a couple days, and just can't get any more condiments. In the spirit of Ash Wednesday, i absolve you of your gambling debt. It was fun playing along.

Once i get settled on the island, will happily do a condiment exchange

Marjie said...

We have Gertrude Hawk chocolates here, made not 10 miles from here. Gotta love the local stuff!

buffalodick said...

BlondeD- I was awfully good!
Tavolini- Bless your marriage! I know you two are made for each other!
Griller- Have a nice trip, and you still hold my marker!
Margie- This place has everything, including a huge selection of sugar free candy for diabetics..

otin said...

Just the title of that alone made me hungry! Sounds fantastic!

buffalodick said...

otin- You would have loved this stuff! Thick, filled with fresh shellfish, with just enough spices.. One bowl left for wifey- she's working late...

tattytiara said...

I take a pass on things that involve arachnid of the sea - I can't help it, I'm a prairie girl with prairie sensibilities that way - but then that would just leave me with extra room for those heavenly looking confections so it's still a win proposition!

carma said...

Like tatty, I'm not a seafood eater, nor carnivore, but I can appreciate those tastie chocolates

buffalodick said...

T.T- "Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker"!!
carma- Do you visit Urban Vegan? She wrote a book!

Chris said...

Old Bay is a favorite seasoning of mine, brings so much flavor. This is a great sounding bisque.

pinknest said...

Mmmm...perfect weather for bisque. Sounds divine. And I would like to have all those chocolates to follow.
