Shrimp And Cucumber Soup With Dill Cream
Chef Chris Tanner at Cheers Restaurant in Little Rock, Arkansas gave me this recipe for a savory shrimp soup garnished with dill sour cream. It's a cream based soup seasoned with onion, garlic, dill, chopped tomatoes and a surprise ingredient – cucumbers.
To make the dill cream, combine all the ingredients together in a small mixing bowl. Set aside while preparing the soup.
Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat.
Add the onions and sauté for 3 minutes.
Add the garlic, dill, salt, cucumber and sauté for an additional 3 minutes.
Add the chicken stock and tomatoes. Simmer for 15 minutes.
Add the heavy cream and shrimp. Simmer for 10 minutes.
Ladle the soup into a bowl and garnish with a dollop of dill cream.
