National Seafood Bisque Day is observed annually on October 19. Seafood lovers celebrate by enjoying a bowl of tasty soup made from the catch of the day! 

Seafood bisque is a smooth, creamy and highly-seasoned soup of French origin.   Based on a strained broth of crustaceans, it is made from lobster, crab, shrimp or crayfish.
The name “Bisque” is likely derived from Biscay, as in the Bay of Biscay. However, the crustaceans are certainly bis cuites, meaning “twice cooked”, as they are first sauteed lightly in their shells, then simmered in wine or cognac and aromatic herbs before being strained.
