Can I freeze Shrimp Bisque?

  • 5

I'm wondering if the additional chunks of shrimp that I put in it will turn to goop when I defrost it in the microwave. Your thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you.

  1. Well, I wouldn't try it, but hopefully we'll hear from somebody who's tried it, for better or worse.

    1. Rather than mw, can you reheat in a small pot? Or is this for the office. If so, what I'd do is reheat like I suggested and bring it with me that way. Besides the microwave doesn't warm,or thaw all that evenly, your shrimp could get rubbery.

        Do you think it would be okay if I defrosted overnight in the fridge and then heated in a pot? I'm just trying to stock the freezer with lots of different kinds of soups. So far, lentil, mushroom, and chicken have worked perfectly.

          Actually, no matter where you thaw it is fine, it is the reheating that will matter the most, Gently warm, no bringing the soup to a boil.

      2. Sure; you can buy it frozen on the web. Yes, it would be best to thaw overnight in the fridge so the shrimp heat evenly.
