1/2-pound jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined (shells reserved)
2 cups organic, no-salt seafood stock
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/4 small white onion, diced
1 celery stalk, diced
1/4 green bell pepper, diced
1/2 tomato, seeded and diced
2 dried chilies, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon POMI tomato paste
Lime wedges, for garnish (optional)
In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the shrimp shells and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they turn pink and release their flavor.
Remove the shrimp shells from the pot and discard them. The infused oil will remain in the pot.
Add the diced onion, celery, green bell pepper, and diced tomato to the pot. Sauté the vegetables for about 5 minutes, or until they become tender.
Add the dried chilies and tomato paste to the pot. Stir well to combine the ingredients.
Pour in the seafood stock and bring the mixture to a simmer. Allow it to cook for about 15 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
While the soup is simmering, prepare the shrimp. Heat a separate skillet over medium-high heat and add a small amount of olive oil. Cook the shrimp for about 2-3 minutes on each side, until they turn pink and opaque. Set the cooked shrimp aside.
After the soup has simmered for 15 minutes, use an immersion blender or transfer the soup to a blender to puree until smooth. If using a blender, return the soup to the pot after blending.
Bring the soup back to a simmer and add the cooked shrimp. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to heat the shrimp through.
Serve the spicy shrimp soup hot, garnished with lime wedges if desired.
