Bisques are a type of soup, historically based on crustaceans, (crayfish, lobster, shrimp, or crab), that are thickened in one of a myriad of ways, and then finished with cream.

4        tablespoons butter
1        small white onion, finely chopped
2        stalks celery, finely chopped
2        cloves garlic, minced
1/3     cup all-purpose flour
3        cups chicken broth
1/2     pound steamed medium size fresh shrimp, peeled, deveined, and chopped
2        cups half-and-half
1        teaspoon Creole seasoning

Remove lobster meat from shell; coarsely chop and set aside.

1 .   In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, celery, and garlic; cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in flour, and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in chicken broth; cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened. 

2  .   Add lobster meat and shrimp. Stir in half-and-half and Creole seasoning; cook for 10 minutes, or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Serve immediately.
