Directions

  1. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in shrimp shells; cook, stirring, until shells turn pink, 2 minutes. Pour in water and bring to a simmer; cook 20 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in green onions, celery, and jalapeno; cook, stirring, until mixture is slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium low, stir in flour and cook 3 minutes.
  3. Pour tomato soup into onion mixture; stir to combine. Pour shrimp shell mixture through a mesh strainer into tomato soup mixture. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a simmer.
  4. Stir coconut milk, red curry paste, and fish sauce into tomato soup mixture, bring to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes. Stir in shrimp, decrease to heat to low and simmer until shrimp are cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Ladle bisque into bowls, place a rice cracker in the middle, and top the cracker with sliced basil.

My husband and I loved this dish. We like spicy food so we added extra peppers and used the hot red curry paste. It added extra flavor.

A creamy and very delightful soup. Made as written except as follows: subbed 3/4 lb. shrimp & 3/4 lb. sea scallops for 1 lb. shrimp, subbed seafood stock for water, doubled the red curry paste, and omitted the rice crackers and sliced basil. We did not remove the seeds from the jalapeno pepper which gave it a welcome hint of heat that was well within our tolerance zone. At this juncture, there are 4 other reviews. All but one mention adding ingredients to give more ‘heat’ to the soup (e.g., doubling the jalapenos or adding cayenne pepper). We would be comfortable with it but I can see where that may disappoint some folks, especially with children . . . taste as you go and only add more if sure you want it hotter. Another very good recipe, Chef John.

This was so easy and fabulous. However, I doubled the curry paste and the jalapenos because I like it really spicy. However, even doubling it wasn't too much and others that don't care for too spicy that it was perfect.

This recipe is stupendous... Thought I'd give it a shot despite the fact that not many people had rated it. It's wonderful. Chef John scores again!!

Surprisingly super delicious! Followed recipe as written except I used cooked shrimp and omitted rice crackers because I didn't have any??

My brother and I both proclaimed this as the best soup we've ever had.
