I made this last night and it was fabulous!!! I added 3 green onions instead of the medium onion...and roasted a large red pepper...chopped, 1 tsp of garlic, a 1/4 tsp of Hot paprika instead of sweet and used Chicken broth instead of the water. This soup is a keeper for sure! Not sure about the 8 servings as there were 3 of us and I had a small bowl left-over...boohoo!!! Thanks for the great recipe!!!
Overall delicious!! I took the advice of another chef and substituted the onion soup with chicken broth. I also used fat free half and half instead of heavy cream and I added russet potatoes. I'd say next time I'll nix the Thyme....it was a little much.
I didn't care for this either. Too many spices (onion soup?), this overpowered the delicate flavor of the shrimp. Need to go with less ingredients. Instead of flour, maybe use potatoes, use small amount of water for potatoes and let that be the thickener. Sometimes less is more. sandy
