I followed the recipe except that i used garlic instead of a shallot, because i didn't have any. i also used whole milk instead of cream. i hand blended the brocolli for a smoother soup. i wondered about the combo with the shrimp, but i had the stuff to make it, so i thought i would try it. its good enough to eat! :)
