"I loved how this shrimp bisque turned out, and I think you will as well. I hope you give it a try, and maybe tweak it with some different combinations of seafood and garnishes." — Chef John

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.
This was great. Everyone I shared it with loved it.The only thing i did different was I added some cayanne red pepper to it for a little more heat.I will definatly be making this again
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.
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.
Loved it!! I will play around with this recipe. Oh the endless possibilities!!
Holy Cow, this was great! I had a 6oz can of Lump Crab, so I tossed that in at the same time as the Shrimp. Upped the curry paste to taste. In the future I intend to experiment with adding Mussels and Scallops too. Thanks for another great recipe!
My brother and I both proclaimed this as the best soup we've ever had.
this was VERY good. I was unsure how how hot the Thai red Pepper paste would be, so I bought the mild paste, gave it lots of flavor. You can get all the flavours without a lot of heat doing this. The paste came in a packet in the Asian part of supermarket.

A beer batter keeps the coconut on these crispy shrimp during cooking.
These easy shrimp have lots of flavor and a great little “kick.”
