  • Boil salted water in a saucepan and cook the raw shrimp for about 5 minutes. When draining the shrimp, make sure to save the water/broth in which they boiled for later. Remove the shells from the shrimp and save the peelings.

  • Saute diced onion in melted butter in a pot, then add the peeled shrimp. Pour crushed tomatoes or tomato pulp and sprinkle flour on top for a thicker texture. Add salt and pepper in preferred amounts. When the soup gets too dense, mix in some of the water/broth you saved earlier and let it simmer until the consistency becomes velvety.

  • Strain the soup and incorporate the cooked shrimp cut into smaller pieces, reserving some whole pieces for decoration.

  • Fry some slices of bread in olive oil and garnish with sprigs of parsley. Upon serving, place the whole shrimp in the bowl of soup as decoration and enjoy your meal!


  • If you want to save some time, you can buy peeled shrimp/without shells from your local grocery store.

Bon Appetit!
