If your partner is a seafood lover, surprise them with lobster bisque for dinner. It's one of the best ideas for date night.
Start by melting 2 tablespoons of butter in a Dutch oven and adding the lobster shells to it. Cook them until golden. This is when you'll stir in the sherry and put it on the heat until the liquid is reduced. The next step is to add garlic, celery, bay leaves, peppercorns, salt, and water to the pan and bring the mixture to a boil.
Cook it on medium-low heat and simmer till only 2 1/2 cups of the broth remain. Pour the mixture through a strainer. Discard the solids and set the rest aside.
Moving on, melt more butter in a skillet and add tomato paste, carrots, onions, mushrooms, cayenne, and a little bit of salt. Stir the ingredients and cook them till all the vegetables are tender. Add some wine, bring it to a boil. Then add the lobster stock and cook it for 10 minutes.
After this mixture is ready, blend it and turn it into a puree. Add milk and cream and bring it to a boil. Lastly, add lobster meat and garnish it. Your lobster bisque is ready in just 40 minutes, and it's going to be one of the most delicious Valentine's Day treats.
