Zesty Shrimp & Oyster Tomato Soup
1 can (14.5 oz) Italian stewed tomatoes, undrained
1 can (10.75 oz) condensed tomato soup (regular or low-sodium)
1 cup milk (I use low-fat or skim, but whole milk works fine & adds richer flavor)
1 cup cooked rice (white or brown)
1/2 tsp Big Daddy's Superb Herb Seasoning (you can substitute Italian herb seasoning, but I prefer the Big Daddy's Superb Herb)
A dash (or several) of a good vinegar-tomato hot sauce, like Blues Carolina Pepper Sauce or Blues Habanero Reserve Hot Sauce
1 small can (4 oz) tiny cooked shrimp, drained (I use Chicken of the Sea brand)
1 can (3.75 oz) smoked oysters, drained and chopped (I use Chicken of the Sea brand)
Shredded Parmesan cheese as a topping
Stovetop instructions: Combine the undrained tomatoes, soup, milk, rice, hot sauce and herb seasoning in a large saucepan, stir to combine, and cook over medium heat until hot (about 10 minutes), stirring occasionally. Stir in the shrimp and oysters, remove from heat, and serve with some shredded Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.
Microwave instructions: Combine the undrained tomatoes, soup, milk, rice, hot sauce and herb seasoning in a 2-quart microwave-safe bowl (glass is best) and stir well. Microwave on high for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes, until hot (cooking time will vary with the power of your microwave). When the soup is heated through, stir in the shrimp and oysters. Serve and sprinkle with shredded Parmesan cheese.
PS: Big Daddy's Superb Herb Seasoning is currently on sale at the Carolina Sauce Company!
