A couple of weeks ago, I was invited by Ninja Kitchen to attend a cooking class, to check out a few of their new kitchen gadgets. While all the new appliances are impressive, I was particularity drawn to their new Cold and Hot Blender so of course, I had to purchase it! (Disclaimer: As a gift tor attending the class, I received a $100 discount on the blender.)
It’s the Fall and I absolutely enjoy making soup this time of year… don’t you? Anyways, to get my feet wet, I broke in my new blender by making creamy lobster bisque! Overall, the blender and the bisque were both FREAKING AMAZING!
Update October 2020: You can also make this recipe using lobster claws instead of Lobster tails, as seen below.
Check out the video and recipe below and tell me what you think!
Recipe Lobster Bisque Made in the Ninja Cold & Hot Blender
makes approximately 4 Servings
Lobster Broth Ingredients
2-4 lobster tails
5 cups of water
1 tablespoon of seafood seasoning (like Old Bay®)
1 cup dry white wine or cooking wine
salt and pepper to taste
1 Bay Leaf
Lobster Bisque Ingredients
2-3 medium carrots thinly chopped
2 celery stalks chopped
1 small onion chopped
6 oz tomato paste
6 tablespoons salted butter (4 Tbsp for bisque, 2 Tbsp to warm lobster)
2 tablespoons flour
2 sprigs of fresh thyme
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup white cooking wine
salt and pepper to taste
Lobster Bisque Directions
Quickly clean the lobster tails in chilled water
Add the lobster tails and 5 cups to water to a large pot. Bring the water to a boil and cook the lobster tails for 5 -7 minutes (depending on how large the lobster tails are.)
Remove the lobster tails from the water and let cool. (do not dump the water, you will use it to make the broth)
Once cooled, you can remove the meat from the lobster tails and chop the meat into bite-sized pieces. You can then store the lobster meat in the fridge and add shells back to the water.
Add the shells to the pot of water and add white wine, Old Bay seasoning, bay leaf, wine, salt and pepper to taste.
Bring to a boil, cover and lower the heat to medium. Allow broth to cook for 20 minutes.
Strain the shells from the broth and set the broth aside.
Add chopped veggies, thyme, and 4 Tbsp butter to the Ninja Blender and press the “saute” function
After Saute is over, add tomato paste, flour, heavy whipping cream, lobster broth, and salt & pepper to taste
Press “smooth soup” function on Ninja Foodi Blender and let it blend
While the bisque is blending, warm-up lobster in a skillet with 2 Tbsp of butter
When the blender is done, Serve the bisque in bowls topped with the cooked lobster and garnish.
