DIRECTIONS

  • It is important to note that your shrimp should come with their shells.
  • REMOVE shells from shrimp and wash shells in cold water.
  • PLACE shells in a sauce pan and add chicken broth.
  • SIMMER shells in the broth for 20 minutes.
  • STRAIN flavored broth and discard shells.
  • SAUTE onion, carrot and celery in hot butter three minutes until softened.
  • STIR in flour and add tomato paste and strained broth.
  • ADD cleaned shrimp.
  • COVER and simmer 15 minutes.
  • PUT the soup in a blender (or use an emersion blender . . . my favorite kitchen tool!) and puree until smooth.
  • STRAIN soup into a clean saucepan.
  • ADD lemon juice, sherry, cream and nutmeg.
  • *Taste the soup and add salt and pepper if necessary.
  • **If you want to freeze, do not add lemon juice, sherry, cream and nutmeg. Do that after defrosting.
