Meet Sandi from A New York Foodie

Hi y'all! While I'm moving and getting adjusted, some of my bloggy friends have written posts for me! I hope you enjoy this series and find some wonderful new blogs to follow! A big hug and thank you to the bloggers who have stepped in for me during my absence. :) Today, let me introduce you to Sandi from A New York Foodie:

I really love shrimp bisque a lot and when I saw this recipe on Kevin's site from Closet Cooking, I knew that I was going to try and make it.  My recipe is a bit different as his as mine is low fat but you certainly can make it his way and will be just as delicious!

Lo fat Pumpkin and Shrimp Bisque
Serves 4


 2 tbsp. olive oil
1 lb. shrimp (peeled, deveined, 1/2 of the shrimps roughly chop, shells reserved)
4 cups fish, seafood, chicken or vegetable stock
1/4 tsp. tumeric
1 large onion, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 bay leaves
1/4 tsp. dried sage
2 cups Pumpkin puree
1/2 cup fat free, low fat or regular half and half or full heavy cream
1 tbsp. lemon juice
salt and pepper, to taste


Heat 1 tbsp of  the oil in large non stick Dutch oven.
Add the shrimp shells and cook until they turn pink and then just start to turn brown, about minutes or so.
Add the broth, tumeric, onions, carrots, celery and bay leaves andbring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer, covered for 30 minutes.
With a slotted spoon or a strainer take out all the solids from the soup.
Add in the pumpkin puree, half and half, and simmer on low heat for 10 minutes.
Add the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a pan. Add the shrimp and saute low-medium heat until cooked, about 2-3 minutes.
Divide the shrimp between the 4 bowls and add a garnish of Roasted Pumpkin Seeds, if desired.


Thank you for stopping by, Sandi :) You can find her on Facebook or follow her blog, HERE.
