  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 pound large shrimp
  • 1 15-ounce can corn drained
  • ½ cup sliced carrots
  • 2 ribs chopped celery
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 pound baby red potatoes quartered
  • 3 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream


  • Add bacon to a large pot and cook over medium-high heat for 4-8 minutes until crisp. Transfer to a towel-lined plate and set aside.
  • Add garlic and shrimp to pot and cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes until garlic is fragrant and begins to brown and shrimp turns opaque.
  • Add corn, carrots, celery, onion powder, paprika, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, potatoes, and chicken/vegetable broth and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then pour in heavy cream. Simmer for 10-12 minutes until potatoes are tender. Stir in bacon and cook another 2-3 minutes.
  • Garnish with chopped parsley or thyme and cracked black pepper, and serve.
