Shrimp Soup with Bacon

Note—- My website crashed last night-I am still working on it. I am sorry for the inconvenience— Please let me know if you find any issues and I will continue to try and get it fixed xo

 

When I made this the other day my sweet husband kept calling it chowder. So feel free to rename this yummy warm your tummy soup. We have had a lot of snow here and it’s perfect for filling you up after some time spent out in the snow.

What You Need

1 Lb shrimp (medium to large size, peeled and de-veined )

4 Scallions, white and green tops (chopped)

1/2 Cup onion ( chopped)

2 Medium baking potatoes (peeled and cut into small pieces)

2 Tbsp. flour

2 Tbsp. margarine ( or butter)

2 Cups milk

2 Cups chicken broth

1 tsp Black pepper

1 Clove garlic (crushed)

1/2 tsp. Mrs. Dash spicy seasoning

2 Cups corn kernels (frozen or fresh)

4 Slices smoky bacon

Soup pot

Nonstick skillet

Paper towel lined plate

Before You Start- Cook bacon in in the nonstick skillet until crispy and place on paper towel lined plate, when cooled crumble into bits and set aside.

Lets Make It! In a large saucepan, combine broth, onions, garlic and potatoes (add corn if it is fresh) and cook over medium high heat until the potatoes are tender (3-5 minutes) Add flour and  mix well to combine. Add milk, margarine ( or butter) Mrs. Dash spicy seasoning, and pepper. Bring to a boil and reduce to a low and simmer, stirring occasionally, add frozen corn and cook until potatoes and corn are cooked all the way through ( about 10 minutes). Add shrimp and continue cooking until shrimp are pink ( about 3 minutes) Add salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle bacon on top before serving.

Serves 2-4

 

Katies Tid Bits* if you like it a little creamier try adding 1/2 cup of heavy cream before you add the shrimp. You can use canned corn instead of fresh or frozen. Add it when you add the shrimp.

    Kathryn,

    This sounds like a warm and comforting soup. In the winter, I love soups…I just made homemade Italian soup on New Year’s Day. I could eat soup everyday and never get tired of it! :)

    Sorry about the crash.

    This soup looks fantastic and I’m sure it still would, even if I wasn’t starving right now!

    I would eat ten steaming bowls of your yummy warm my tummy soup, dear Katie, but I’d probably pick out the bacon and feed it to my dog Toto because I eat very little red meat. Have a wonderful week, dear friend!
