Step 1

In a large heavy kettle, heat 1 tablespoon of butter over a medium heat and cook the shrimp for 4 to 7 minutes or until they become opaque on the outside. Remove the shrimp to a plate, set aside.

Heat the remaining butter and cook the onion and celery for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the garlic and flour and continue to cook for additional 2 minutes. Then add the paprika, bay leaf, chicken stock, and diced potatoes. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat to low and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes. Add the corn and continue to cook for additional 15 minutes.

While the soup is simmering, reserve 8 shrimp and chop the remaining into bite-size pieces. Add the heavy cream, old bay seasoning, and all the shrimp. Adjust seasoning to your preference.
