How to make slow cooker shrimp and crab bisque

Print this recipe
Shrimp and crab bisque is a dish that's delicious at any time of the year. It's particularly good in the summer months because the fresh taste of seafood can be so satisfying, yet still on the lighter side of things. Plus, as in the recipe that follows, it can be made in a slow cooker so you don't heat the house up on those warm days.
In this recipe, elegant flavors come from dry white wine, seafood stock, and of course, the seafood itself. And for those that are sticking to a low-carb diet, this chowder is different than many others because it doesn't use potatoes. That makes this dish seem even lighter, but trust us that it's an incredibly filling stew even without them.
