Cajun Shrimp Soup recipe

Shrimp soup, though commonly eaten in Asian cultures, is not as well known in the western countries. Enjoy this Cajun-inspired recipe on a hot summer day, as itís incredibly cooling. Makes 4 servings.


8 cups chicken stock
1 ½ cups dry white wine
1 cup chopped green onions
1 cup chopped parsley
½ cup chopped celery
1 tablespoon diced garlic
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons Louisiana hot sauce
Salt, to taste
2 lbs of shrimp, shelled, chopped


  1. Place all ingredients except shrimp in large stockpot. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook, covered, for 45 minutes.

  2. Add shrimp and simmer for an additional 30 minutes.

Consider this light but spiced soup the perfect accompaniment to a crusty baguette. Serve it with a glass of light-bodied aromatic wine, such as Riesling or Beaujolais.
