Classic Shrimp Bisque

This is a lovely shrimp bisque has a very pretty color and satin-smooth in texture This short-cut version dispenses with the classic, laborious pounding of shells, but loses nothing in the omission of great flavor, you don't have to believe me just try it your self.

1/4 cup of minced sweet onion
