Stir the bottom to ensure that the brown bits on the bottom of the pot are loosened and mixed into the liquid mixture.
• Using a hand held emersion blender; blend the mixture of the soup until it is semi-smooth.

2. Immediately, reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 20 minutes or until the soup is reduced and thickened.
3. Add the salt and pepper to the reduced soup base and let it cook for another 5 minutes before taking it off the heat. Take it off the heat and transfer the soup into an appropriate container needed for holding or cooling. Cool it according HACCP Procedures and refrigerate if not using.
4. During service, reheat lobster bisque and to use the diluted Lobster Stock (5 to 1 ratio) to adjust the consistency and thickness of the soup. Add the cooked lobster meat and bring the soup to 180F and take it off the heat and serve while still hot and warm.
