Tuscan shrimp and spinach soup —> HOLY YUM! 

A warm bowl of this best shrimp soup with a crusty piece of bread will warm your soul in this cold winter – Tender shrimp, fresh spinach, creamy soup, nutty parmesan with a hint of spice.

How do I know that this is an amazing cream of shrimp soup recipe

I made a sauce version to be served on pasta which is probably the best sauce ever. The Shrimp with sun dried tomato cream sauce is a creamy sauce made with chicken stock, sun dried tomatoes, spinach, parmesan and hint of red pepper flakes. This is great served over pasta or a big hunk of crusty bread. 

I couldn’t stop there. Well, I had to create an instant pot version (Click here for more instant pot recipes). Instant Pot Creamy Tuscan Chicken soup which is just an Instant pot version with chicken. So, you know this is GOOD STUFF!

How to make Italian shrimp soup recipe?

  1. Cook shrimp in olive oil, until just cooked and transfer to a bowl.
  2. In the same pan, saute onion, garlic and red pepper flakes in some butter. 
  3. Add some all purpose flour and saute for few seconds until flour is toasted and raw flavor is gone (about 30 seconds)
  4. Add remaining ingredients (one can stock, 1/2 cup heavy cream, 1/4 cup milk, 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, 1/4 cup parmesan, 2 handfuls spinach, salt and pepper).
  5. Let soup come to a boil, and cook for about two minutes–> soup will thicken slightly and spinach is wilted. 
  6. Take off heat, stir in cooked shrimp along with any accumulated juices ( don’t wanna waste any flavor).
