Fast Shrimp Bisque

Directions

  1. In a 4-quart Dutch oven combine the water, Old Bay Seasoning, shrimp, and celery. Cook, uncovered, over medium-high heat for 5 to 8 minutes or until shrimp shells turn pink and shrimp are opaque. Remove shrimp with slotted spoon or tongs; set aside to cool.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together evaporated milk, milk, flour, and anchovy paste; stir into liquid in Dutch oven. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Meanwhile, peel shrimp. Chop about half the shrimp. Add chopped shrimp to soup. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until heated through. Ladle into bowls. Top with remaining shrimp. Pass additional seafood seasoning.

From the Test Kitchen

Change Up:

For a spicy curry seafood soup, use coconut milk in place of evaporated milk and add a little curry powder and Asian chili sauce.

ALWAYS LOOKING FOR FAST, EASY RECIPES! Most of the ingredients are pantry available.
Recipe is easy to understand and execute. Results are a delicious, warm and creamy, satisfying soup meal.

This was so good! I used a full pound of shrimp and added and extra tsp of Old Bay. When I make this again I will make a roux first with flour and butter and then mix in the milk and anchovies because I like a thicker bisque and this wasn't very thick. Still delicious, though.

Amazing recipe!!! Even my boyfriend, who doesn't like shrimp, loved this bisque! I think I'll use a little less celery next time (maybe only 1/2 cup). Overall, wonderful!

My family love, love, LOVED this recipe! It makes for a quick, somewhat elegant, start to a dinner. I changed the recipe up a bit - I too added a pound of shrimp, instead of the 12 ounces it calls for, & chopped it all. Also, I didn't have any evaporated milk on hand, so I doubled the milk and added a touch more flour. I added an entire small container of anchoives (chopped), which I thought added a nice touch. Even my 6 year old "Chicken Nugget Kid" loved this bisque! Definately will be making this again!
