  • 6 slices bacon chopped
  • 1 medium turnip cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Garnish with the bacon and chopped parsley upon serving.
