Lobster Bisque recipes vary greatly from one to another. Some of the lobster bisque recipes call for frozen canned lobster meat. Others require you to purchase live lobsters and dispatch them yourself. One way–the most common–is to immerse the lobster in a pot of water and boil it for about twenty minutes. Another way is to plunge a knife behind the lobsters head and immediately cut the lobster down the middle and remove the head. The first method seems worse for the lobster but allows the lobster's fluids to incorporate into the water. The second method is much quicker for the lobster but requires you to collect the body fluids as they escape as you cut the lobster apart. Which ever way you choose, with these recipes you will have made a delicious lobster bisque.
