Robin says: “This soup my grandmother made all the time. I use to love it. Just thinking about it I will have to make some :o)”


  • 2 pounds peeled shrimp
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 5 medium potatoes
  • 1 can biscuit dough or homemade biscuits
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • salt, black pepper, red pepper to taste


Step 1

In a large stock pot, add oil and onions. "Cook down" stirring occasionally paying careful attention not to brown the onions.

Step 2

Add the peeled shrimp and cook until pink; add cubed potatoes. Fill the stock pot three quarters full with water and bring to a boil.

Step 3

While the water is coming to a boil, roll the dough out on a flat surface and cut into strips. Add the dough to the soup when it is in a full rolling boil.

Step 4

Cook for 25 minutes more. Serve with crackers.
