This is my boyfriend’s favorite – he’s a Cajun, born and raised in Broussard, La.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds medium shrimp
  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream
  • 1 pint half & half
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 2 cans chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp Tony’s Cajun seasoning
  • 2 drops red food coloring
  • salt & pepper to taste

Directions

Step 1

Melt butter in stock pot. Add whipping cream, half & half, seasonings and 1½ cans of chicken broth.

Step 2

Bring to boil then reduce heat to medium low and cook for approximately 20 minutes, making sure not to scorch.

Step 3

Add red food coloring at this point if you choose this option.

Step 4

Place half of peeled shrimp into a chopper and chop very fine and add to the soup.

Step 5

Cut the remaining shrimp into two or three pieces each then add to the soup. Simmer soup for about 10 to 15 minutes until the shrimp are cooked.

Step 6

Mix 1 tablespoon corn starch with the remaining chicken broth and add to soup.

Step 7

Stir until the soup thickens then put the lid on the pot and turn off the heat. The soup is ready to eat at this point.
