Ingredients
  

  • 6 slices bacon chopped
  • 1 medium turnip cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 lb shrimp peeled and deveined, tails on or off

  • In a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat, cook the bacon until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain, reserving the bacon fat in the pan.
  • Add the turnip and onion to the pan and saute until the onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, another minute or so. Pour in the chicken broth and simmer until the turnip is tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in the cream and the shrimp and simmer until the shrimp is pink and cooked through, another 3 minutes or so. Add the Cajun seasoning and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Garnish with the bacon and chopped parsley upon serving.
