The Best Crockpot Shrimp Soup Recipe

If you are wondering ‘can you cook shrimp in a crockpot’ the answer is a definite yes. You can see when shrimp is cooked because it turns from grayish white to pink, and you can see by looking through the crockpot lid what color the shrimp is. This soup is made in two stages. First a base is made with chicken broth, ginger, garlic and other flavorings, and this is allowed to cook slowly, so all the flavors can blend and develop.

When the base is done, the shrimp is added along with snow peas, green onion and lime juice, and allowed to cook over a slightly higher heat. The shrimp is cooking in liquid so it retains all its moisture and slow cooking is a gently method of cooking anyway, allowing the shrimp to remain tender and moist.

Although this recipe features a chili pepper, feel free to leave it out if you prefer mild dishes, or you can remove the seeds from the chili to make it less hot. Another option is to swap the chili for a tablespoon of garlic chili sauce. Serve this garnished with cilantro leaves if you like, since the flavor will suit the aromatic taste of the soup, or you could serve some bread on the side to make it a more substantial meal. If you have a slow cooker and always seem to be searching for new crockpot recipe ideas, this one is a guaranteed winner.
