New Orleans Shrimp & Squash Bisque (Treasure Trove #2)

Total Time
Prep 30 mins
Cook 30 mins

From my long-lost treasure trove of recipes newly found. While we love homemade soups in Iceland, I cannot make this as I have not seen a squash here in nearly 4 yrs. This is very low-cal & low-fat, but I will have to rely on you RZ chefs to tell me if it is as good as it looks to me. As w/TrTr #1, my best guess is this was prob a Food Network recipe. Enjoy!

What a great soup, we loved this!!!! Doesnt even need the shrimp really, so very tasty, the shrimp is like a bit of extra luxury!!! Easily prepared and packed full of goodness, we enjoyed this with crisp hot breadsticks, and since we were only 2, DH has another lunch or two of great soup to enjoy! Thanks Twissis, lovely recipe, made for For Your Consideration tag game

Excellent bisque! I love all the vegetables blended into creating this wonderful flavor! I did not have any baby or small shrimp on hand, and used large instead, but still worked very well. I use all the Old Bay and Tabasco which proved to be perfect for our taste! Thank you, twissis!

This was a surprisingly good soup. My hubby did not like the sound of it when I told him I was making it. Next time I will definately lower the old bay even more(It is just too strong a taste for my family). Plus 4 of my 5 kids liked it enough to eat it.
