If you’ve made our delicious Cast Iron Creamy Chicken recipe then chances are you’ve got some sauce leftover. Well, hopefully you have. That sauce is so delicious it is so easy to mop it all up with some crusty bread. So, if you do have leftovers, we’ve got you covered with this delicious Creamy Shrimp Soup dish

That delicious, velvety mushroom sauce is just so packed full of flavor. There really is not much you need to do to create this dish. All the beautiful flavors have been created and concentrated into that lovely sauce. What we’re doing here is simply re-using it with a different, yet equally tasty protein – some beautiful Shrimp

Any type of Shrimp will do for this recipe. We’ve used Tiger Shrimp for this dish however whatever good quality Shrimp your local fishmonger or supermarket has will suffice. You can even use pre-cooked Shrimp if you like. Just reduce the overall cooking time and add the Shrimp at the very end just to heat it up

Finally, get yourself some delicious, crusty bread to mop up all that amazing sauce. Home baked is best of course, but some nice crusty Sourdough from your local bakery will work too. Dip it into that sauce and enjoy!

That’s all there is to it. The Sauce is already quite well seasoned so there is no need to really add anything to it. You may find that the Sauce has intensified in flavor since you’ve made the Creamy Chicken dish. If so, you can always adjust the seasoning with a little bit of Lemon Juice to get the sauce to your preferred flavor profile. Happy cooking!
