Wow did this turn out amazing!!! My Shrimp Soup is chucked full of potatoes, onions, shrimp and mushrooms with the most amazing broth! I found the secret to making the best broth ever for this soup! The only thing wrong with this soup is that I didn’t make more!
My secret to this delicious soup is that I used Better Than Bouillon Roasted Chicken Base instead of canned chicken broth. It is absolutely the most flavorful chicken base I have ever tried! When using this product, do not add salt to the recipe. There is the perfect amount of salt in the Better Than Bouillon and it will be too salty if you add more.
My second secret is that I boil the shrimp, save the water and add 1-1/2 cups of the shrimp flavored water to my soup. Make sure you buy raw shrimp so you get to use the water and give the entire broth an amazing shrimp flavor!
Bring a medium pot of water to a boil and boil the thawed shrimp
according to the package instructions being careful not over cook.
Remove the shrimp and set aside saving the water.
In a medium pot add the prepared chicken base, 1-1/2 cups
of water from the shrimp, salt, pepper, potatoes and onion.
Bring to a boil, with a lid, over medium heat cooking until
the potatoes and onions are almost tender.
Add the mushrooms and continue boiling
until potatoes and onions are tender.
Turn off the heat and add the cooked shrimp and Half-n-Half.
