    luvmybge's Note:

    Are you looking for a quick but delicious seafood soup? Can't wait to make that stock and take all that extra time? Well.. this is the soup for you. It's thick and creamy and comforting. I know many of you out there frown upon the use of condensed soups. But try this.. it tastes like a restaurant quality soup without all the fuss. Use whatever seafood you like. Just use at least 1 1/2 pounds of it. You can even use chopped cooked chicken if you don't like seafood. Want a curry flavor? Just add some curry powder while cooking the onions and celery. You can turn this into a creamy curried vegetable soup by omitting the seafood and using more onions and celery with the addition of carrots and whatever other vegetables are your favorites. Leave out the curry powder for a satisfying creamy vegetable soup. Just try it.. you'll like it.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 cup butter
    • 1 stalk celery, minced
    • 1 small onion, minced
    • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
    • 3 tablespoons flour or 3 tablespoons baking mix (I use buttermilk baking mix)
    • 3 1/2 cups milk (or more if you like a thinner soup More milk can be added as needed after soup is completed.)
    • 2 cans condensed cream of potato soup (undiluted)
    • 1 1/2 lbs shrimp or 1 1/2 lbs scallops or 1 1/2 lbs clams or 1 1/2 lbs crab (whatever you want your soup to be I like to use shrimp, scallops and whole baby clams. I've even use)
    • chopped fresh parsley (to garnish)


    1. 1
      Melt butter in 3-quart saucepan over low heat.
    2. 2
      Saute' celery and onion until tender.
    3. 3
      Add cayenne pepper, thyme, marjoram and flour or baking mix and stir until smooth.
    4. 4
      Add milk and condensed soup and stir until piping hot.
    5. 5
      Meanwhile clean and chop seafood as you like.
    6. 6
      I usually halve the shrimp and then cut one half in half and leave the other half whole.
    7. 7
      If using extra large scallops I usually quarter them.
    8. 8
      When soup is piping hot add seafood and stir on medium heat until seafood is cooked through.
    9. 9
      Serve in bowls topped with some fresh parsley along with some crusty bread or oyster crackers and a nice salad.

      This was so easy that I felt guilty! I used a can of crab and clams with the juices and made up the rest of the pound and a half with shrimp. I added some potatoes and corn too. Loved it.

      I made this recipe tonight for my family. They loved it! It was so easy and simple - and I loved that I had most of the ingredients on hand. I added fresh mushrooms and corn to my batch to make it a little heartier. Will definitely make it again.

      Wow, I made this with fresh shrimp, using 2/3 off the butter, and only one can of celery soup, I also added some diced potatoes I cooked for 5 min in the microwave. Fabulous, next time, and there will be a next time, I think I might try old bay, and cut back the cayenne by half, overall and excellent restaurant quality soup. Update: I made it with old bay, and I like the thyme/marjoram better, although I rarely use the cayenne. I am making this a least once a month now. mostly w/ shrimp.
