Alternative Preparation Method: Shrimp Bisque in a Slow Cooker

Shrimp Bisque With Some Shrimp Toast
A dollop of cream and a sprinkle of parsley – the finishing touches that turn a shrimp bisque into a culinary masterpiece.


  • 1 pound of large shrimp, peeled and deveined, shells reserved
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • 1 can (14 ounces) of diced tomatoes
  • 4 cups of seafood or chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup of dry white wine (optional)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper (adjust to your spice preference)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish
  • Crusty bread or shrimp toast for serving


  • Sauté the Aromatics: Heat the olive oil in a pan and sauté the onion, carrots, celery, and garlic until they’re softened and fragrant. Transfer this mixture to your slow cooker.
  • Add the Ingredients: To the slow cooker, add the shrimp shells, diced tomatoes, broth, white wine (if using), bay leaf, paprika, thyme, and cayenne pepper. Give it all a good stir.
  • Cook Low and Slow: Cover your slow cooker and set it to the low-temperature setting. Let the bisque simmer for 6-8 hours, allowing the flavors to meld and intensify.
  • Prepare the Shrimp: About 30 minutes before serving, remove the shrimp shells from the slow cooker and discard them. Stir in the peeled and deveined shrimp. Let them cook until they turn pink, which should take around 20-30 minutes.
  • Finish with Cream: Stir in the heavy cream and let the bisque heat through for about 10 minutes.
  • Season and Serve: Taste the bisque and season with salt and pepper to your liking. Ladle the bisque into bowls, garnish with chopped fresh parsley, and serve with crusty bread or shrimp toast.

Cooking Tips

Tips for Success:

  • Use fresh or frozen shrimp with no additives. They will give your bisque the best flavor.
  • Sautéing the aromatics before adding them to the slow cooker enhances their flavor. Don’t skip this step.
  • Adjust the cayenne pepper to your desired level of spiciness. You can add more or less according to your taste.
  • Don’t rush the slow cooking process. Allowing the bisque to simmer for the recommended time ensures the rich, full-bodied taste.
  • Taste and season your bisque at the end to avoid over-salting, as the flavors intensify during the slow cooking.

Common Mistakes to Avoid:

  • Overcooking the shrimp can make them tough. Add them about 30 minutes before serving to ensure they’re perfectly tender.
  • Be cautious with the cayenne pepper. It’s easy to make the bisque too spicy, so add it gradually.
  • Using heavy cream is essential for a creamy bisque. Substituting with milk or half-and-half won’t give you the desired richness.

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) about Shrimp Bisque with Some Shrimp Toast

Shrimp Bisque Recipe
Discover the secret ingredient that makes our shrimp bisque unforgettable: love for food.
  • Can I use pre-cooked shrimp for the bisque? It’s best to use raw shrimp as they infuse the bisque with their flavors while cooking. Pre-cooked shrimp may become rubbery when reheated for an extended period.
  • How can I make the bisque less spicy if I’ve added too much cayenne pepper? To reduce the spiciness, add more cream or a bit of sugar. Dairy helps temper the heat, and sugar can counterbalance the spice.
  • Can I freeze leftover Shrimp Bisque? Yes, you can freeze it. Just ensure it’s in an airtight container, leaving some space for expansion. Thaw and reheat gently, stirring frequently.
  • What’s the ideal consistency for Shrimp Bisque? It should be creamy and velvety. If it’s too thick, you can adjust by adding a bit of broth or cream. If it’s too thin, let it simmer uncovered to thicken.
  • What’s the best way to reheat leftover bisque without overcooking the shrimp? Reheat slowly on the stovetop over low heat, stirring frequently. Don’t bring it to a rolling boil to prevent overcooking the shrimp
