SEAFOOD - Generaly a Seafood Bisque doesn't have tomatoes.
The Seafood - Lobster, Crabs(blue claw or Alaskin King), Shrimp and Craw Fish are usually cooked in the shell in order to create a fish broth. The process is very involved.
A great tomato version can easily be done. Use about a pound of your favorite seafood. Cook in shell or just add the meat with the other ingredients.
Before the puree process remove seafood, let cool, remove meat and discard shells. Add 2/3 of the seafood to the puree process. Chop the remaining meat into small bite size chunks and add back in with the remaining tomato chunks.(Very Good!)
