Shrimp Corn and Tomato Soup

This is not my family recipe for Shrimp and Corn Soup. This is a new very veggie soup loaded with the "Trinity" of onions, bell pepper, and celery. It is light on the carbs of corn but big on corn and shrimp flavor. The cream corn adds a lot of body and sweetness to the broth. It is more fresh tasting than shrimp and corn soup with a roux. I have to admit I have skinny soups on the brain right now. I am a little hungover from all the rich holiday food. I plan on making a lot of light soups that you don't feel guilty about have a second serving. It is so very cold here in north Louisiana right now. It was 18 degrees last night. BURRR! Soup is just what we all need to stay warm. Look! I have included nutritional information for you. So I hope you will add this soup to your meal plan real soon.

Shrimp Corn and Tomato Soup
Makes 6 servings


2 tablespoons olive oil
1 green bell pepper, diced
2 medium onions, diced
6 ribs of celery, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
4 cups chicken or shrimp broth
1 (15 oz.) can cream corn
1 (15 oz.) can diced tomato (undrained)
1 bay leaf
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
1 lb. (26-30 count) shrimp, peeled and deveined
Kosher salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Red pepper flakes, to taste
Creole seasoning, to taste
Green onions, sliced
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley


Heat the oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the bell pepper, onion and celery; season with salt and black pepper. Sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the broth, corn, tomato and bay leaf; simmer for 10 minutes.

Season shrimp with creole seasoning. Add the shrimp and jalapeno; cook just until pink and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Taste for seasoning and adjust as necessary with salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes and creole seasoning.

To serve, ladle the soup into individual bowls and sprinkle with the chopped parsley and green onion.
