Homemade Organic Cream of Shrimp Soup

As I was perusing old recipe books this afternoon, I stumbled upon a recipe that called for Cream of Shrimp Soup.  I hadn’t heard of such a thing.  After scouring the interwebs, it appears that most people haven’t heard of this soup, either.

Here’s What You Need:

  • 2 1/2 cups Homemade Wild-Caught Shrimp Stock
  • 1 1/2 cups organic grass-fed whole milk
  • 3/4 cup organic non-bleached white flour
  • 3 Tbsp. organic pasture butter
  • 1/4 cup organic onion, finely minced
  • 3 cloves organic garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tsp. Real Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. organic freshly ground peppercorn blend

Here’s How I do it:

  1. Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat
  2. Add onions and saute for 2-3 minutes
  3. Add garlic and saute for 2 minutes
  4. Add the chicken stock and ½ cup of the milk in a large saucepan and mix well.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Bring mixture to a low boil.
  7. Pour the flour and remaining milk into the saucepan and whisking continuously over medium heat as the mixture simmers.
  8. Continue to simmer and stir/whisk until the mixture is smooth and thick, 5-10 minutes. The mixture will thicken a bit as it cools.
  9. Enjoy!
