Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Mixing Bowl
  • 1 Large Pot
  • 1 Blender/Immersion Blender

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve and peel onion. Slice ¼ the onion into thin strips and cut remaining into ¼" dice. Peel and cut potatoes into ¼" dice. Peel, trim, and cut carrot into ¼" dice. Shuck corn, rinse, and carefully remove kernels from cob. Stem and mince parsley. Pat shrimp dry.

  • Step 2 - Cook the Onions

    Cook the Onions

    Line a plate with a paper towel. In a mixing bowl, toss to coat sliced onions and cornstarch. Heat a large pot over medium heat. Add 3 Tbsp. olive oil and onions to hot pot and stir often until crispy, 4-6 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt. Remove to towel-lined plate. Reserve pot; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 3 - Cook the Shrimp

    Cook the Shrimp

    Return pot used to cook onions to medium heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and shrimp to hot pot. Cook undisturbed until lightly browned, 1-2 minutes per side. Shrimp will finish cooking in a later step. Transfer shrimp to a plate. Reserve pot; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 4 - Start the Soup

    Start the Soup

    Return pot to medium heat. Add potatoes, diced onions, carrots, and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pot, and stir occasionally until slightly tender, 5 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high heat, and add 2 cups water, wine, and corn to pot. Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes and carrots are tender, 8-10 minutes.

  • Step 5 - Finish the Soup

    Finish the Soup

    Stir in cream. Carefully pour half the soup in a blender. Remove clear insert from lid and cover blender with dish towel. It is very important to remove insert before blending to avoid exploding soup! Blend until very smooth, 1-2 minutes. Return blended soup to pot with remaining soup. Return to a boil and stir in shrimp and any accumulated juices and parsley until shrimp reaches minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 2-3 minutes. Season with salt to taste.

  • Step 6 - Finish the Dish

    Finish the Dish

    Pour soup in a bowl. Garnish with crispy onions.
