Chef Irie’s Shrimp Bisque

Like this Post?:

Chef Irie’s Shrimp Bisque was featured in Season 1, Episode 4 of “Taste the Islands”. It is not a traditional bisque, which usually more like a “cream of” one ingredient or another. Chef Irie’s version is a creamy, spicy bisque with other surprising elements like thick, smoked bacon, curry powder, ginger and red onion. The flavor is pretty hard to describe, but amazing to enjoy. Enjoy!
