Ingredients

    2 tsp Olive Oil
    1 Large Red Onion, thinly siced
    2 Celery Stalks with leaves, sliced
    2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
    3/4 tsp paprika
    2 cups fat free half and half
    1 1/2 cups of corn kernals (I use frozen corn)
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/2 lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined (I use frozen as well)

Directions

Makes 4 servings (about one cup each)

1. Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and celery, stirring occasionally, until softened, usually about 5 minutes. (**I don't usually put the celery in and it tastes just fine without it!)
2. Add Flour and Paprika, stirring constantly for one minute.
3. Remove saucepan from heat. Add half and half, whisking until smooth. (Isn't half and half already smooth? Just sayin.)
4. Add corn and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly for about 3 minutes, until soup is thickened.
5. Add shrimp, stirring often for about 3-5 minutes, until shrimp turn opaque in the center. (If you want, you can steam the shrimp separately and then add it)

It's that simple!! :) Enjoy!!!
