2 servings

Ingredients list:
  • 5 slices Oberweis Thick-Sliced Bacon
  • 1 pound Xtraordinary Whites Shrimp
  • 2 cups yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp thyme, dried
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper
  • 2 1/2 cups Seal the Seasons North Carolina Sweet Corn on the Cob, cut off the cob
  • 3 cups Seven Sons Pasture-Raised Chicken Bone Broth
  • 1 cup Oberweis half and half
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Fresh thyme sprigs for garnish, if desired (optional)

  1. In a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat, fry the bacon pieces until crispy (about 8 to 10 minutes), stirring frequently. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Drain off fat from pot, leaving 1 tablespoon.
  2. Add shrimp to the pot and cook until pink (about 3 to 4 minutes), stirring frequently. Remove shrimp with a slotted spoon and add to the plate with the bacon. Leave juices in pot.
  3. Add onions and garlic. Sauté for about 3 minutes, or until onions are soft and translucent.
  4. Add paprika, crushed red pepper, thyme, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently for 2 minutes.
  5. Add corn, chicken stock and half and half. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes.
  6. Using an immersion blender, blend about half of the soup until creamy. If you don’t have an immersion blender, blend 2 cups of soup in a blender and pulse until creamy (exercise caution while blending hot liquids – blend small amounts at a time and hold down the top of blender pitcher while blending because there is a risk of the top blowing off and hot liquids to blow out!) and return to pot and stir well.
  7. Serve with shrimp and sprinkle with bacon pieces.
  8. Garnish with fresh thyme sprigs, if desired.
