1 medium yellow onion, rough chopped

1/2 medium green bell pepper, rough chopped

1/2 cup orange juice

2 bay leaves

1/4 teaspoon whole fennel seeds, crushed

salt to taste

Place all ingredients except shrimp in a crock-pot slow cooker. Cover, cook on low 4 to 41/2 hours or until vegetable are crisp-tender.

Stir in shrimp. Cover, cook 15 to 30 minutes or until shrimp are pink and opaque. Remove and discard bay leaves., if salt is needed you can add it at this time then stir and let sit for another minute or 2....then serve and enjoy.

This great tasting soup can serve 6 to 8 people, but it also great for left-overs and easy to freeze and reheat.
