Make a roux base for Emeril Lagasse's lobster bisque by heating 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a heavy pot or Dutch oven and adding 3 tablespoons of bleached all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon at a time. Stir the mixture constantly for about 10 minutes, or until it is blended and turns light brown. Add 1/2 cup minced onion, 1 cup of corn kernels, 2 tablespoons of minced shallots and 2 tablespoons of minced celery to the roux. Stir in 1 tablespoon of minced garlic, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, and cook until the onions soften.

Slowly stir in 1 cup of fish stock or water, add 2 bay leaves, and bring the soup to a boil. Add 2 cups of milk, 2 cups of heavy cream and, if desired, 1 teaspoon of crab boil seasoning. Reduce the heat, and simmer the soup for about 30 minutes. Stir in 1/2 pound of diced, cooked lobster meat and 1/4 cup of minced green onions, and simmer the soup for an additional five minutes. Remove the bay leaves before serving the bisque.
