Shrimp Soup with Sherry

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
