Shrimp Bisque Recipe

I enjoy both Cajun and Mexican cuisine, and this rich, elegant soup combines the best of both. I serve it with a crispy green salad and glass of white wine for a simple but very special meal.—Karen Harris, Castle Rock, Colorado

Wow.....this is amazing! You will definitely want to double the recipe because 1 servings won't be enough!!

Loved it! After browning onion and garlic, I pureed with a can of diced tomatoes, skipped the flour and simmered for 30 min with spices then added chopped cooked shrimp and left over chunky guacamole.

I thought this sounded pretty good when I read over the recipe. When I tasted it though, let me tell you - I WAS TOTALLY BLOWN AWAY. It is AMAZING!!! Definitely deserves to be served for a special holiday meal or some other special occasion. YUM.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 15, 2012

I made this to take to a Girls Ceasar Salad Night and it was a huge hit! I let my 17 yr. old son try it before I left and he said that it was the best soup he had ever eaten. Needless to say he was less than thrilled that I left the house with it for others to indulge. The only changes I made were instead of using the whipping cream, full sour cream and uncooked shrimp, I did use half and half, light sour cream and cooked shrimp which I threw in towards the end just to heat up. Fantastic! Thanks for sharing!
