Paula Deen's recipe for potato soup with shrimp calls for eight medium russet potatoes. Several of Deen's other soup recipes call for a single potato, such as her recipe for carrot soup with blue cheese.
The potato soup with shrimp recipe calls for peeled and cubed potatoes, which are then boiled until soft in a mixture of milk and bouillon. Add sautéed carrots and onions, shrimp, and seasoning to taste.
Boil the potato in the carrot soup recipe in vegetable stock until soft with carrots and lettuce. Blend with sautéed onions, celery and, optionally, cream to create a smooth puree.
