White Asparagus Soup with Shrimp

I had these 2 bottles of asparagus from my friends in Denmark sitting on my kitchen shelf for a long, long time.  I finally decided to make soup of them. I looked up some recipes in the internet and then created my own tweaking from a couple of them.

Serves 2 to 3


  • 2 bottles white asparagus
  • 200g shrimp, deshelled and deveined
  • 2 medium onions, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp butter, divided by half
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, divided by half
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 3 cups water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Heat half the butter and olive oil in a pan. Add three fourths onion and cook until translucent.
  • Remove and puree along with asparagus and the liquid. Set aside.
  • Heat the remaining butter and olive oil and add the remaining onion and cook until translucent. 
  • Add the garlic and thyme and cook until garlic smells aromatic. 
  • Add the shrimp and saute until shrimp is cooked, about 3 to 5 minutes. 
  • Now add the asparagus and onion puree, the chicken stock cube and water to the pan. Bring to a boil and add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
