Yields:

2 quarts (8 servings)

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp. avocado oil
  • 12 large shrimp shelled and deveined (8 oz.)
  • 6 oz. small scallops
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 cup minced celery
  • 1 cup minced yellow onion
  • 3 large cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp. old bay seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp. dry oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne powder
  • 1 cup dry white wine*
  • 2 cups clam juice
  • 2-3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 6 oz. crab meat picked through for shell fragments
  • 6 oz. canned chopped clams with juice
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 serving Savory Chicken Soup Keto Chow
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp. minced fresh chives
  • 2 Tbsp. minced fresh parsley
  • 1 lemon cut into wedges

Directions:

  • Heat a large soup pot over medium heat and add the avocado oil.
  • When the oil is hot, carefully add the shrimp and cook for about one minute. Turn the shrimp over and cook on the other side for another minute.
  • Remove the shrimp and add the scallops to the pot to brown for one minute.
  • Add the scallops to the shrimp and set aside.
  • Add the butter to the pot and melt.
  • Add the celery, onion, and garlic to the pot. Cook over low heat until the onion is translucent.
  • Add the fresh thyme,** bay leaf, old bay, oregano, and cayenne pepper to the pot.
  • Pour the white wine over the vegetables. Stir to scrape any browned bits from the bottom of the pan and mix everything together. Bring the wine to a boil.
  • Carefully add the clam juice to the wine and return to a boil. Cover the pot and cook for five minutes, or until vegetables are tender.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the hot water and Keto Chow and mix until smooth.
  • Slowly stir some of the hot broth into the Keto Chow, then slowly mix all the Keto Chow into the soup pot and bring back to a simmer.
  • Add the cooked shrimp, scallops, clams, and crab meat and heat over low until the seafood is heated through.
  • Stir in the heavy cream, chives, and parsley and bring to a gentle simmer.
  • Don’t allow the soup to boil or the seafood will be overcooked, and the heavy cream will split.
  • Taste for seasoning and add more salt if desired. Remove the bay leaf and thyme sprigs.
  • Garnish the bisque with more chives or parsley, and a dash of cayenne if desired. Serve piping hot with fresh lemon wedges.
*You can replace the white wine with another cup of clam juice and a tablespoon of lemon juice.
**Some or all of the thyme leaves will remain in the bisque and that’s fine. Remove the twig-like stems, which are too tough to eat.
