  • Ingredients:
  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cups diced yellow onion
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 cups butternut squash (peeled, de-seeded, and diced into ½ - inch cubes)
  • 2 cups peeled fresh shrimp
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons salt
  • 3/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • ½ cup shrimp stock (see NOTE)
  • 6 cups heavy whipping cream
  • NOTE: To make shrimp stock, place shrimp heads and shells into a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes. Strain.
Heat the butter in a heavy-duty saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and bay leaf and cook, stirring constantly, until the onions become soft and clear, 3-4 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium and add the butternut squash. Cook this mixture, stirring occasionally, until the squash begins to soften, 6-8 minutes.
Reduce heat to low and add the shrimp, salt, cayenne, and white pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp turn pink, 2-3 minutes.
Add the shrimp stock and cook, stirring occasionally, for 6-8 minutes. If the mixture begins to stick to the pan, scrape it with a spoon and continue cooking. This will intensify the flavor of the bisque.
Remove bay leaf and discard. Transfer the squash/shrimp mixture to a food processor and puree. Return the puree to a saucepan and add the cream. Whisk until thoroughly blended. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 2-3 minutes.
