“The lobster base is an important ingredient in this recipe. It may be necessary to increase or decrease according to your taste. I find the best brand is Minor’s, which may be obtained from a wholesale food purveyor.
The brandy and sherry are also important to the flavor of the bisque and may be increased or decreased according to your taste.
* Tomato paste is optional. If you do not use the lobster base, it is necessary to use tomato paste for color.” –Chef Davis
