Shrimp Bisque

bland and labor intensive

I would rather dry fry the shrimp and throw them on top of the veggies in a salad.

Great dish and so EASY!

I made this dish last night, and it turned out beautifully! From the very beginning, the smells coming from the pot were making my mouth water. I did add a bit more flour in the end to thicken it up, but the flavor was amazing. Even my picky-eater boyfriend really liked it. Chopping the veggies was the most tedious part, but not a big deal at all. Will make again!

Ina Garten uses leeks and garlic and shellfish stock so clam juice might make it better than just water.
