As our week of Super Bowl madness begins to draw to a close, I feel that it is only appropriate to end with appetizers inspired by the cities of the two teams in the big game. In this case, that means Baltimore and San Francisco. To add a twist to your Super Bowl party food table, consider putting “neutral” foods in the middle and putting team-inspired foods on either side.
Today, I decided to feature an easy crab bisque recipe in honor of the Baltimore Ravens. Maryland is well-known for their crabs…in fact, blue crabs are the official food of the entire state! I used lump crab meat for this recipe, but if you have access to blue crab, then definitely go that route!
Tip: This bisque can easily be stored in the refrigerator, but ensure that the bisque has cooled completely before transferring into the refrigerator.
Tip: If the bisque if too thick, simply add additional milk.
Tip: If you do not own a double boiler, you can easily create one by placing a small bowl over a small sauce pan. Fill the sauce pan with 2 inches of water and heat until just simmering. The steam from the water will then slowly heat the bowl above without scorching the milk. Make sure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water in the sauce pan! (See picture below.)
