Bisque is a type of soup that is purportedly from an area of France called the Sea of Biscay. Bisques feature spices from that region. Others believe that the word “bisque” comes from the French “bis cuites,” meaning “twice cooked.” Bisque is first sauteed lightly, then simmered in wine or cognac and aromatic herbs before being strained. Seafood bisque features a variety of seafood offerings, including shrimp.
