Shrimp Stew

All of Marjorie's stews are interesting; how they are made and their ingredients. I was taught the difference between a soup and a stew is that a stew has potatoes in it. So far all of Marjorie's Stews have not had potatoes and have been a very thin broth.

In addition to this, the fish stews have but two ingredients in them: the fish, sauteed in some butter, and milk poured over the fish. The milk is brought to a boiling point and then kept warm. The stews are seasoned with salt and pepper.

Of course for this project I need to make and experience all of the recipes, but I find that these soups are bland and not very interesting. The Shrimp Stew was no exception. Simply saute shrimp with butter and add milk. I would have liked to have added potatoes or some vegetables. Once done with this particular project I will have to experiment with this kind of soup again!
