HEAT THE OIL and butter, if using, in a large pot over medium-high heat.
Add the onions and saute until well browned and caramelized, about 30 minutes, stirring frequently.
Stir in the clam juice, wine, marsala, rice, and thyme with a good pinch each of salt and pepper.
Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the rice is very tender, about 30 minutes.
WORKING IN BATCHES, puree the soup in a food processor or blender until smooth.
Return the soup to the pot and stir in the cream.
Reheat the soup until very hot; taste for seasoning.
DIVIDE THE SHRIMP evenly among individual bowls.
Ladle the hot soup over the shrimp and garnish each bowl with a sprinkle of thyme leaves.
Serve immediately.
