  • Add the tomatoes, bring back to the boil and simmer for 8-10 minutes.
  • Stir in the cream, mayonnaise and milk and bring to the boil, Reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until bisque starts to thickened and the colour deepens. Serve topped with chopped parsley and some freshly cooked langoustine tails or freshly cooked king prawns.
  • As an option try adding 30 ml brandy to the dish just before adding the cream.

As the flames subside add the cream and follow the remaining recipe instructions.
