This hearty soup is chock full of vegetables (leek, onion, carrot, garlic, celery) that get pureed with the tomatoes for a creamy consistency, without any actual cream (except for the optional dollop of sour cream). The shrimp shells are also cooked along with the above to impart seafood flavor. The best part of the soup just might be the shrimp that are coated and fried to a delightfully crispy crust.

This has to be one of the best cream of shrimp soup recipes that I have ever made. It was rich, creamy, and had chunks of shrimp within every bite. This soup has the perfect area of thickness and not at all runny. I rate this at 4 stars and will be making it again this week.
