"Splash" was a hit film in 1984.  Tom Hanks plays Allen, a guy who falls head over "fins" in love with a mermaid.  Daryl Hannah is Madison, the mermaid who is a normal girl out of the water, but reveals her fish tail when wet. Talented Director Ron Howard (yes, Opey) unites these two unlikely lovers while giving us plenty of hearty laughs.  One of the most memorable scenes takes place in a restaurant when Madison and Allen are on a date.  Madison eats her lobster in a very unusual way. Great scene, loved it!

Our lobster bisque recipe is a perfect 10 on the flavor scale and is the perfect meal for two.  This recipe isn't for lovers only, but love always makes food taste better!
