Killer Shrimp Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
I'm giving 2 stars mainly because it's a distance away from the original flavor. It's not a 1 star because NewMexicoMama provides a good foundation! Dierdre58's modifications DO come MUCH closer (although it sucks that s/he won't divulge the "secret ingredient involved") LOL jk I just got through making it about 30-min ago (with Dierdre58's modifications). After reading the other 5-pgs of comments last night I tried finding that secret element(s) myself by adding the following to Dierdre58's: **first sauteed the minced garlic with the stick of butter ADDED the following: 1 teaspoon thyme 1 teaspoon Worchestire sauce 1 tablespoon of Tobasco sauce 1/2 of a lemon (added to the 3 hour simmering) 1 can (12oz) Budweiser beer (instead of white wine) I probably can't open my own chain of restaurants but the bowl I have in front of me is 98% there!! *Maybe I just need a rockabilly waitress serving me, an arm full of tattoos, and a jar of Arnold Palmer to feel the other 2% Again, bravo to Dierdre58! (now give YOUR ingredient) :)
