In a large saucepan, heat 2 tbsp, EVOO over high heat. Add 1 lb 21-25 count, shell on, raw shrimp, season with salt and cook, stirring, until pink and firm, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the shrimp to a medium bowl and let cool slightly. peel the shrimp and transfer to a clean bowl. Return the shells to the pot. Add 8 cups water and 3 sprigs thyme, bring to a boil and cook over medium heat for 2- minutes. Strain the broth into a large glass measuring cup, pressing on the shells to extract any juices; discard the shells. Add 1 chopped onion, ½ c. chopped celery and 1 tbsp. EVOO to the pot; season with salt and a pinch of cayenne. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in 2 tbsp tomato paste then 1 c. white wine. Bring to a boil and cook until the liquid is almost evaporated. Add the shrimp, broth and 2 tbsp long-grain rice. Bring to a simmer and cook over low heat, skimming occasionally, until the rice is cooked, about 1 hour. Remove 6 of the shrimp and slice in half lengthwise; reserve. In a blender, puree the soup with the remaining shrimp in batches; return to the pot. Add ½ c. heavy cream and bring to a simmer. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Season with more salt and cayenne. Ladle the bisque into bowls; garnish with the reserve shrimp and thyme.
