Instant Pot Lobster Bisque


  • 1 C diced carrots
  • 1 C diced celery
  • 29 oz. canned petite diced tomatoes
  • 2 Whole Shallots Minced
  • 1 Clove Garlic Minced
  • 1 Tblsp. Butter
  • 32 oz. low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 Tblsp. Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 Tsp. Dried Dill
  • 1 Tsp. Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • .5 Tsp Paprika
  • 4 Lobster Tails or 24 oz. frozen lobster
  • 1 Pint Heavy Whipping Cream


  • Place butter, minced shallots and garlic in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 2-3 minutes, or until shallots and garlic are translucent.
  • Place tomatoes, carrots, celery, minced shallots and garlic into the Instant Pot.
  • Add chicken broth and spices to the Instant Pot.
  • If you're using full lobster tails, use a knife to cut off the fan at the end of the lobster and add those to the pot, otherwise place the frozen lobster into the Instant Pot.
  • Set the Instant Pot for four minutes.
  • Once the pot comes to full pressure and completes the four minute cook cycle, allow the Instant Pot to naturally release the pressure.
  • *If you've used lobster tails take them from the pot and remove the flesh from the tails at this time.
  • Using an immersion blender, puree the soup mixture to desired chunkiness. I like a medium puree.
  • Add the cream and stir.
