Shrimp Creole Soup
If you like your soup hot (in more ways than one), try this Southern comfort food based on Shrimp Creole, a Creole-style favorite. Besides the fact that you’ll eat This Shrimp Creole Soup with a spoon rather than a fork, this dish is everything you expect from the popular New Orleans recipe with the same name. Pair the “trinity” of Creole ingredients — onion, celery, and bell pepper — with shrimp and tomatoes, and spice it up with Tabasco and cayenne. The addition of broth transforms it all into a soup. And bacon offers an extra savory element.
Test Kitchen Tip
Include the juice from the can of diced tomatoes to give the broth of the soup a more prominent tomato flavor.
Cook bacon in a large pot over medium heat until crisp.
Whisk in flour; cook 2 minutes.
Add shrimp to soup and cook 3 minutes more.
