The recipe stated that it was rich, but this soup was even richer that I anticipated. I only used chicken broth, but I think the sherry would add some depth. It was delicious and easy; I really liked the blend of flavors.
Shrimp Soup with Sherry
Very rich, so small servings Can be made with or without sherry Hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper can be omitted. Using olive oil instead of butter and fat-free half-and-half would cut the fat content and the richness. Parsley from a tube can be used. Defrosted frozen shrimp make this recipe easier and less expensive. Marilyn Graner, Metairie, LA From Taste of Home Casseroles, Slow Cooker & Soups
