Think of this as a grown-up version of a classic tomato soup—creamy, comforting, and easy to pull together on a busy weeknight. A combination of both fresh tomatoes and canned gives the soup a deep tomato flavor without a long cooking time, and the shrimp turn a simple dish into something special. If you have frozen shrimp on hand, defrost in a bowl of cold water for about 10 minutes before adding them to the pot. You can also make this recipe ahead of time; toast the bread and garnish the reheated soup with fresh dill just before serving.
