Shrimp bisque is hearty. Great for a cozy day in the kitchen, slow cooking with the t.v. on in the background.
I slow cooked the soup without the shrimp. Add shrimp towards end, when your soup is the consistency you want.
Just let the shrimp warm up in it, otherwise they will turn tough on you.
6c chicken broth
3c chopped carrots
2c chopped celery
Start with the the chicken broth and the chopped carrots and celery. Let those slow cook until tender. Or if you want to speed it up, saute them first in a little olive oil.
2c instant rice ( I didn’t think instant rice would work, but it did!)
Whisk in about a cup of flour in small batches. You decide the consistency you want.
6oz tomato paste. I thought it added nice color and texture.

1 1/2 lb cooked shrimp. Take tails off of course. Duh. If you’re worried about them stinking up the trash, just put them in a plastic bag.
