This bisque is so delicious and creamy good! It is also very easy and quick to prepare. Instead of the shrimp, I often dice up some firm white fish like sea bass or halibut for a different flavor. The addition of the dab of ketchup gives the bisque a lovely light pink/coral color. Try serving the bisque in a wide bowl with a scoop of rice in the middle. Sprinkle with chopped parsley to garnish.
