  • Combine the diced turnips, onions, and garlic in the pot. Season with ½ teaspoon salt. Let turnips and onions cook in the bacon grease for a few minutes.
  • Stir in the chicken broth and let the turnips simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Stir in the shrimp, heavy cream, and xanthan gum. Turn heat to high and bring to boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and simmer for 5 minutes. Serve with chopped parsley and reserved bacon for garnish.
