Using the same pot, heat remaining oil. Saute onions and garlic until fragrant. Add carrots and sauté until tender. Add tomato paste and cook for a minute. Add tomatoes and stock; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer; cook for 15 minutes.

Set aside 12 pieces of cooked shrimp. Add the remaining shrimps to the soup. Purée soup in a food processor in batches. Strain through a coarse sieve set over a large bowl.

Using the same saucepan, melt the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons butter. Add flour and cook for 2 minutes. Add the puréed soup and simmer until slightly thick. Add cream and season to taste with salt and pepper.

To serve, ladle soup into 6 bowls. Top each with 2 pieces shrimp and garnish with chopped green onions.
