"That's what I call YUMMY COMFORT food! To make it a bit richer I saute one large onion in 5 tablespoons of butter sprinkled with one tablespoon of brown sugar till caramelized. Then add to soup at the end with shrimp"

salt and pepper to taste
small shrimp - peeled and deveined
pears - peeled, cored and diced
sherry wine, or to taste
This is a keeper! I used the suggestion about carmelizing the onions, using only 1 T. butter, but found it too sweet. Made it again leaving out only the sugar--much better, and definitely sweet enough. I also blended all of the pear (too much of a 'burst' of sweetness when biting into the little chunks of pear). A great recipe!
I thought it was bland. Maybe it was because I used frozen shrimp, but I won't make it again.
I cut the servings down to 4 & roasted my squash (cut in half, scrape out seeds, place cut side down in inch of water, bake @350 for about 45 minutes... maybe an hour) & then scooped out the inside & added it to the milk & broth (cutting down the cooking time, naturally). I pureed all of the pears (didn't have quite as much as recipe called for because I used some in pear-tinis ;o) ) I did make the carmelized onions (they had a lot to the soup!) but I only used a couple tbp of butter, half an onion & sprinkled them w/ salt instead of sugar. The only sherry I had was a cream sherry but it worked. I started the meal off w/ Pear-tinis (even hubby liked those), served this soup w/ a salad (w/ pear/honey vinaigrette), garlic toast & finished it off w/ Pears w/ Raspberry Sauce. Thansk for a very enjoyable recipe namaste2uom!
Quick to make. Pears are a nice touch! So healthy and tasty too!
Yum! This recipe was great, I didn't even get sick of it after three meals! The caramelized onions on the top were amazing.
This was pretty tasty, but next time I plan not to puree the shrimp. I prefer big chunks of shrimp. The carmelized onion was a great touch!
this is the one Pam and Shawn Loved - I made it for Kovarik Christmas I think and didn't go over well.
I was a little skeptical, but this dish was fantastic! Very elegant and gourmet. My husband and I ate it with a side of asparagus and a dry Riesling. This one's a keeper!
