Fast Shrimp Bisque
Ingredients
  • 2  cups  water
  • 2  teaspoons  Old Bay Seasoning or other seafood seasoning
  • 12  ounces  fresh or frozen medium shrimp in shells, thawed
  • 2  stalks  celery, thinly sliced (1 cup)
  • 1 12  ounce can  evaporated milk
  • 1  cup  milk
  • 2  tablespoons  all-purpose flour
  • 2  teaspoons  anchovy paste or 1 or 2 anchovies, finely chopped
  •  Seafood seasoning (optional)
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 KitchenChange 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.
