  3. Add the remaining shrimp to the saucepot and cook 1 minute until heated through. Puree soup in blender in batches; return to saucepot. Whisk in tarragon, tomato paste and cream mixed with water.
  4. Bring to a simmer; cook 3-4 minutes to blend flavors. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to bowls; garnish with remaining shrimp

Cooking Tip

Did you know that you can easily portion out and freeze soup to save for a busy night down the road? When ready to reheat, either microwave or heat up in a pot over the stove with a splash of water.
