Soup Sundays with Cajun Style Shrimp & Corn Bisque

When I get a chill, there is just something about a creamy, thick bisque that warms me and satisfies my appetite like nothing else. Maybe it's the chilly days I spent in San Francisco, huddling up against the fog with a warm bread bowl of clam chowder, or maybe it's the fact that I grew up in the warm, balmy climate of Florida (so I'm still not used to the chilly air). Regardless, bisques are satisfying, warm and delicious, and they are perfect for chilly fall evenings.

And they are so filling that they really are a stand-alone meal all their own. For larger appetites, simply pair it with a slice of rustic sourdough bread and butter, and they will be full for sure. This Cajun style shrimp & corn bisque is as delicious as it is satisfying, and with VitaClay, the prep work, cooking and clean up are all a breeze! So wrap up in your blanket and sit by the fireplace while dinner cooks itself!
