Low-Fat Cream of Shrimp Soup Recipe
Lowfat Cream of Shrimp Soup
Just a Few Shrimp?
Cook with wine! Eight ounces of shrimp, just a measly half pound, is enough to make this easy and elegant lowfat soup, to satisfy four. Use a mini-chopper for the onions, shrimp, and herbs and it will come together quickly. Evaporated milk is a great substitute for cream. And drink the rest of the wine, now that the bottle is open. . .
