This is the BEST corn and shrimp soup recipe EVER! It was posted in a local church cookbook by my grandmother's neighbor, but my grandma swears that it is her recipe! Anyway, it is not a cream based soup but is very delicious. It is a little time consuming, but WELL worth the wait!

Very good recipe. I added more spiciness (chilli powder, Joe's stuff) and it came great. With a fresh bread - that's a meal to enjoy!
