And there are so many different types; you really are spoilt for choice.

15+ Easy Shrimp Soups We Can’t Get Enough Of

1.  Easy Thai Shrimp Soup

Skip the takeout and save some cash with this easy-peasy Thai shrimp soup.

As much as I love Thai takeout, this recipe is too easy not to try out.

It only takes 30 minutes to make; plus, it’s much more straightforward than you might think.

The secret to all that great flavor is the Thai red curry paste. Find it at your local Asian supermarket or online. 

2. Chilled Cucumber, Avocado & Shrimp Soup

In my opinion, chilled soups are super underrated.

They’re flavorful, refreshing, and the perfect light bite after a day in the hot sun.

And this soup is no different.

The mildness of blended avocado, cucumber, and mint makes the spiced shrimp sing.

This combo is so good, you have to give it a try.

3. Shrimp Corn Chowder

Super comforting and lightly sweet, this shrimp corn chowder will warm you up from the inside out. It’s creamy, hearty, and oh-so-yummy.

Plus, corn kernels add a lovely pop of color to match the pink shrimp.

Thick, rich, wholesome, and filling, it’s exactly what you need during a cold snap or rainy day.

Simply curl up on the sofa with a hot bowl of shrimp corn chowder for pure comfy bliss. 

If you like your chowder spicy, be sure you add a big dash of cayenne pepper or grab the hot sauce. Yum!

4. Creole Corn and Shrimp Soup

Another delicious corn sensation is this creole corn and shrimp soup that’s overflowing with flavor.

The tomato base is a terrific dairy-free alternative to creamy seafood soups. That means everyone can enjoy this shrimp dish.

The best part is just how easy it is to make.

It calls for frozen shrimp and a few pantry staples. Leave it to simmer, mix, and devour.

Even the smell is irresistible!

5. Asian Soba Noodle Soup with Shrimp & Vegetables

This tasty soba noodle soup is a quick and easy one-pot recipe. Making a steaming hot bowl of yummy noodles has never been easier.

Nothing’s quite as satisfying as slurping noodles from a warm, savory broth, aside from the plump, juicy shrimp, of course. 

Plus, this dish is chock full of fresh veggies, and you can use pretty much whatever you have on hand.

Grab your chopsticks and dive in!

6. Creamy Italian Shrimp Soup with Spinach

Creamy, dreamy, and 100% delicious – that’s what this Italian shrimp soup brings to the table.

The Tuscan flavors of the sautéed shrimp add so much depth of flavor, and the cream base is to die for.

Finally, the spinach adds a nice bit of bulk and a kick of nutrients.

Serve this with a lovely piece of crusty bread, and hungry mouths will devour every last drop. Delish!

7. Chinese Shrimp Wonton Soup

The fragrant flavors of this Chinese shrimp and wonton soup are beyond mouthwatering.

Seriously, you’ll want every last one-ton.

If you’ve never made wontons before, don’t stress – it’s much easier than you might think.

You’ll make a quick meaty filling of minced pork, minced shrimp, and seasonings. Then, scoop it into store-bought wonton wrappers and cook.

How easy is that?

This is a dish you won’t want to share, so be sure to make extra!

8. Sriracha Shrimp Ramen Noodle Soup

This ramen noodle soup is the perfect way to get your noodle fix.

And it’s so quick and easy to make. It only takes 20 minutes, which is fabulous for midweek dinners.

This spicy bowl of goodness is seriously good.

Sriracha adds a punchy kick of heat that takes these noodles to the next level. And meaty shrimp are the perfect protein to match.

Super hearty, super good, and super simple. What more do you need?

9. Caribbean Fish Soup (Fish Tea)

Take a trip to the Caribbean with this spicy, savory seafood soup.

Packed with hearty veggies, potatoes, and a variety of fresh seafood, this dish is a flavor explosion.

You’ll use fresh shrimp and your choice of white fish – I like tilapia because it’s so readily available.

Seafood lovers will go nuts over this fragrant soup. You can swap out the chicken stock for fish stock if you’d like a more fishy flavor. 

10. Mediterranean Shrimp Soup

When I think of the Mediterranean, I always think of excellent seafood. And this Mediterranean soup captures all those fantastic savory flavors in one bowl. 

The tomato broth is brimming with veggies and fresh herbs, plus whole wheat pasta and tender shrimp.

Everything is finished with a zesty lemon juice, making this hearty, light, and heavenly.

11. Lemon Orzo Soup with Shrimp

Need an easy midweek meal on the table fast? This lemon orzo soup has you covered.

Full of juicy shrimp and hearty orzo, it’s everything you need at the end of a long day.

Have this dish hot and ready in twenty minutes with just ten ingredients – many of which you probably already have on hand. 

A fresh pop of lemon zest and lemon juice is the final touch that really elevates this simple dish.

Give it a try the next time you need an easy meal!

12. Coconut Red Curry Shrimp Soup

This coconut red curry shrimp soup is the ultimate Thai-inspired dish. It’s fragrant, savory, and just a little spicy.

And, of course, it’s downright delicious. 

Not only does this coconut red curry soup taste amazing, but it looks fantastic too. The red tint is seriously eye-catching. 

Serve this soup at your next dinner party, and it’s bound to be a showstopper.

13. Shrimp Pho – Vietnamese Noodle Soup

Craving a fragrant bowl of pho but don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen? You’re in luck!

This shrimp pho recipe is faster and easier than the traditional recipe. But it tastes just as good.

The intensely flavored broth is full of toasted spices, fresh flavors, and aromatics. Slurp up those silky rice noodles and be transported into herbal heaven. 

The secret to this soup’s intense aroma is toasting the spices. Seriously, don’t skip this step!

14. Tom Yum Soup (Thai Soup)

One of Thailand’s most famous dishes, Tom Yum is notorious for being spicy, sour, and simply scrumptious. 

The key to the intense flavor is the aromatics and the use of whole, shelled prawns.

That means you want to keep those shrimp heads intact! They’re super important for creating your own shrimp stock.

This recipe has two different versions of the traditional Tom Yum: the clear kind and the creamy kind.

Whichever version takes your fancy, it’ll be amazing. 

15. Spicy Shrimp Tortilla Soup

I know what you’re thinking: tortilla soup? Seriously?

It sounds a little strange at first, but trust me, it’s super tasty. 

Think of it like a deconstructed shrimp taco. The crispy tortilla topping adds a beautiful texture to the tomato broth.

They’re kind of like croutons, but better.

There’s also cayenne, chili powder, and jalapeños in the mix, so only make this if you like heat!

16. New Orleans Shrimp Sausage Gumbo

This hearty, savory, meaty stew hits the spot every time.

Gumbo is the ultimate comfort food. It’s so flavorful, every spoonful feels like a new experience. 

This recipe takes around an hour to make. But it’s definitely worth the labor of love.

One bite of that thick, rich stew, and you’ll see why. 

The complex flavor comes from the toasted roux, Cajun spices, shrimp stock, and okra.

So, grab your Dutch oven this weekend and get cooking!

17. Brazilian Shrimp Soup 

I love a classic bowl of tomato soup. But when I’m looking for something a little more interesting, I turn to this Brazilian shrimp soup.

Also known as “Moqueca De Camaro,” this seafood soup is a popular dish in Brazil. And each town and village has its own signature twist on this dish.

But this recipe calls for juicy shrimp.

This creamy, dreamy tomato soup is loaded with shrimp, coconut milk, and bright lemon juice.

What more could you ask for?
