Big Al's Louisiana Shrimp and Crab Bisque 1 teaspoon olive oil 1 lb. peeled shrimp 1 pint peeled and cooked crab meat 3 strips of bacon sliced thin, and I DO mean thin 1 medium yellow onion (diced finely) 1/2 bell pepper (diced finely) 1/2 stalk celery (diced finely) 4 cloves garlic (minced) 2 Tablespoons dried parsley 3 Tablespoons Old Bay Seafood Seasoning 1 teaspoon Creole or Cajun Seasoning 1 pint half and half 2 cans of 'Pet milk"...(evaporated milk) 1 can whole kernel corn 1 can "diced" potatoes What I did is put about 1 t spoon of olive oil in a Large pot, placed the bacon in there and started rendering it...on medium low heat...about half way through, I put in the onions, celery, and bell pepper...and uncooked shrimp...COVER that...The shrimp are going to release some very tasty juices that you want to keep!!! Pop a top my friend...and Wait...about 15 minutes...Ok, the shrimp are JUST cooked through...Now add the crab meat and stir. Now it's time for the Old Bay, and garlic...Stir it in thoroughly, and add the half and half, and pet milk. Drain the corn, but keep the liquid from the potatoes, and add that now too...Put in your Creole or Cajun seasonings, and parsley, and let that come up JUST to a boil...then turn it down and simmer for 1.5 hrs., stirring Not constantly, but, keep an eye on it so as it doesn't stick, or burn...and that's it!!!
