This creamy Cajun Shrimp Soup has the flavor of gumbo but is less time consuming to make!
This cozy shrimp soup was our dinner on New Year’s Day. It was a meal without much fanfare. I mean, the soup was really good, but it wasn’t eaten like a holiday dinner. In fact, we ate it at the coffee table with my brother-in-law while taking turns playing a ridiculous video game. New Year’s just isn’t a big deal at our house. I did make the Black Eyed Pea Dip in an attempt to insure our good luck in the coming year, but generally I don’t care about staying up until midnight on December 31st or doing anything special on New Year’s. It’s more of a day to feel sad that Christmas is officially over, take down the Christmas tree, and, in this case, console myself with wine, soup, and video games. What do you do for New Year’s? Of course, this spicy, creamy shrimp soup can be enjoyed any time of year. It’s similar to gumbo, but it doesn’t have a dark roux, contains milk, and has the rice cooked right in. If you want the taste of gumbo on a weeknight, this soup is a good bet! It’s great leftover for lunches too.
