If you can find head-on shrimp, this is the perfect time to use them. This recipe is from Spring in Marietta, GA, our #7 Best New Restaurant 2017.


  • 3 pounds shell-on, tail-on shrimp, divided
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 large carrots, peeled, chopped
  • 1 leek, white and pale green parts only, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 3 tablespoons Carolina Gold or other long-grain white rice
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ small butternut squash, cut into ¾-inch pieces
  • 2 15-ounce cans navy beans, rinsed
  • Chopped chives and lemon wedges (for serving)

Recipe Preparation

  • Pulse 1½ lb. shrimp (with shells and tails) in a food processor until a paste forms (it should look similar to ground meat).

  • Melt ¼ cup butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook shrimp paste, breaking up with a spoon, until browned, 8–10 minutes. Add 2 bay leaves and 3 qt. water. Bring to a simmer and cook 40 minutes. Strain shrimp stock through a fine-mesh sieve into a large bowl, pressing on solids to extract as much liquid as possible; discard solids and wipe out pot.

  • Tie parsley, thyme, and remaining 2 bay leaves together with kitchen twine; set aside. Melt remaining ¼ cup butter over medium-high heat in same pot. Add carrots, celery, onion, leek, and shallot; season generously with salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are golden brown, 10–12 minutes. Add tomato paste and cook, stirring constantly, until slightly darkened in color, about 1 minute. Add cognac and cook, stirring, until liquid is evaporated, 2–3 minutes. Add shrimp stock, rice, cayenne, and reserved herb bundle. Bring to a simmer and cook until rice is tender, 20–25 minutes. Add cream and cook 5 minutes longer. Pluck out and discard herb bundle.

  • Working in 2 batches, purée soup and vegetables in a blender until smooth and creamy. Return to pot and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Add squash and cook just until tender, about 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, peel and devein remaining 1½ lb. shrimp. Add shrimp and beans to pot. Bring to a simmer just to warm through, then remove from heat and season with salt. Let bisque sit 5 minutes to let shrimp cook through.

  • Divide bisque among bowls. Top with chives and serve with lemon wedges for squeezing over.
