Shrimp Bisque (can be dairy free, too!)

I make this with shrimp usually but any fish would be great.

15 Min


3 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
2 Tbsp
minced garlic, about 2-3 cloves (can substitute onion or shallot)
3 Tbsp
butter (i use earth balance vegan butter spread, dare i say it might even taste more buttery than butter!)
8 oz
shrimp (about 8 large)
1 1/2 c
vegetable broth
1 1/2 c
plain tomato puree or sauce
1 tsp
double concentrate tomato paste
1 c
sweet corn
1 c
creme fraiche, plain yogurt (for dairy free use plain soy yogurt)


1In medium sauce pot heat oil and butter on low. Let butter melt and add minced garlic. Let garlic sautee until slightly brown. If using onion/shallot sautee until translucent.
2Once garlic is browned add shrimp. Brown shrimp on one side and turn. Cook through. Once cooked remove from pot.
3Let oil cool in pot then add broth. Let simmer for one minute then add sauce and paste. Whisk to combine.
4While broth and sauce are simmering dice up your shrimp. After sauce has simmer for a few minutes add shrimp back and corn. Let come to a low boil then slowly stir in creme or yogurt.
5Top with some shredded cheddar or course bread crumbs.
