Shrimp Bisque

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by love4culinary

This is a delightful recipe I thought I would share with you! Cooking time just depends on how long it takes to cook your shrimp and make it come to a boil... so please just follow directions and pay less attention to cook time.

Made this for my DH, DS, and DD--the baby is still to young to appreciate this! DH told me that I outdid myself on the bisque and it was outstanding. I followed the recipe almost as is...sauteed the celery and onion for a few mintues before adding the shrimp. The only change would be to add a little black pepper next time. Excellent soup and EASY recipe!
