Shrimp Creole Soup for Crock Pot

READY IN: 3hrs 10mins
Recipe by Ellee

This is an easy, healthy, flavorful and spicy soup. It is an impressive first course for company if you use large or jumbo shrimp. Alternatively, you can use tiny shrimp and the cost will be much lower but the taste will be the same. It is a regular main dish for my family (using smaller shrimp) and for my annual 'soup party'. I found this recipe on southernfood.about.com and have improved upon it (in my opinion) since first posting by adding vinegar, red wine and Worcestershire sauce. These ingredients are noted as "optional'.

This really could not be any easier to make and the flavour was very good. I made the recipe as written and let the flavours blend over night. Today, I reheated the soup and decided that even though the flavour was good, it needed to be a bit more substantial for us. So, I decided to add some cooked brown rice and some corn to the soup and then I thickened it by adding a half can of tomato paste. I did use all of the "add in" options you indicated as well - red wine and red wine vinegar and the worcestershire and I think these changes did add to the original recipe. All in all a great little recipe that we will repeat. Made for Spring PAC 2012. Thanks Ellee!
