    My husband's amazing creation... Shrimp, cream, sherry - how can you go wrong with that combo? Warning this is HIGHLY addictive, especially when paired with homemade Cuban bread.

      I just wanted to say thank you to Joe for this recipe. My husband loves shrimp in any form and I wanted to do something special for him. He absolutely loved this soup. I could not believe that I could not buy shrimp with heads on to make the shrimp broth. Since I did not have the heads to stew with the shells, I added some more vegetables to the broth that Emril uses in his broth. I used onion, carrot, celery, leeks, and shallots. I also used a full teaspoon of the herbs listed. I tasted the broth after 50 minutes and found that I had to add salt but I did not use as much as stated in the recipe due to our dietary concerns. I continued to reduce the liquid because I had more than what the recipe called for. This helped the flavor and at the end when I added the extra sauteed celery, onion, garlic and shallots, I added a tablespoon of Better than Bullion Chicken Base. Once the shrimp( on which I seasoned with Old Bay) were added, the soup tasted wonderful. My husband and I made this together and we both enjoyed making it and eating it. Thank you again. This one is a keeper.
