Shrimp Bisque


12 oz frozen tail on shrimp

4 Tbs. Butter

2 Celery sticks chopped

2 Carrots peeled and chopped

1 Onion chopped

1 Cups Veg Stock

¼-½ cup White Wine or brandy

2 Cups Water

2 Tbs. White rice

2 Tbs. Tomato paste

¼ teaspoon Cayenne pepper

¼ teaspoon Thyme

½ teaspoon parsley

1 Cup Cream

3 Tbs Juice of lemon

Boil frozen shrimp with tails on in stock and water until shrimp are pink. Strain broth- water into large measuring cup and set aside along with shrimp. Remove tails once cool enough to handle and place cooked shrimp in refrigerator until ready to put back in the soup. Sweat veggies in butter and oil over medium low heat until tender. Season with salt and pepper at this point. Once veggies are tender, add liquor and allow to simmer and reduce a bit (2-3 min). Return broth to the pot, add rice and additional seasoning, taste and season more if needed. Allow to simmer on low for 30 minutes, until rice is tender. With immersion blender or in batches in standard blender/food processor puree until smooth. Return to pot if not using immersion blender, stir in cream and reheat over medium heat. Add lemon juice, season if more is desired and serve. For an extra pop of flavor, allow your guests to add sherry to their individual bowls.
