Coconut Milk Shrimp Soup

Coconut Milk Shrimp Soup

Zoe

"I threw these ingredients together when I realized I had half a can of coconut milk left in the fridge that was about to go bad. All in all, I think it came out pretty good! It's very variable and the coconut flavor is not too strong."

  1. Heat 3 tablespoon vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Fry 1 clove garlic and 1 chopped green onion in the hot oil 30 to 60 seconds. Add the mushrooms, tomatoes, salt, and 1/2 tablespoon lime juice and cook until the tomatoes are soft, 3 to 5 minutes; set aside.
  2. Bring a pot of water to a boil; add the carrots and cook until fork tender, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and set aside.
  3. Heat another 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large saucepan, cook the other clove of garlic in the hot oil 30 to 60 seconds. Add the cumin, coriander seed, and turmeric; cook another 1 to 2 minutes, allowing the spices to slightly burn on the bottom of the pan. Stir in the jalapeno pepper, 2 chopped green onions, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 1/2 tablespoon lime juice and the tomato mixture in with the spice mixture, scraping the bottom of the pan with a spatula to loosen the spices. Whisk in the coconut milk; simmer 6 minutes.
  4. Add the cooked shrimp, carrots, and peas to the soup and stir; simmer until hot, 3 to 5 minutes. Submerge the vermicelli pasta in the soup and allow to cook until the pasta is softened, 5 to 7 minutes more. Garnish with chopped cilantro.

This soup was outstanding, although I did make a few modifications. I used diced/cooked butternut squash, eliminated the mushrooms and instead vermicelli I used corn and barley. To make a nice b...

This recipe is overcomplicated. Why sauté (basically) the same ingredients twice in two different pans? Why blanche/peel the tomatoes? Just sauté the stuff, add the spices, then add the tomatoes...

Really, very good, spicy, savory, 'bout as good as I've had in the Thai restaurants. The coriander, tumeric and cumin really "make" it! Only thing is, I felt like it needed more liquid to be a ...

I was really disappointed with this recipe. It sounded great, but fell short of its promise. It is really a shrimp vegetable/pasta soup. I was hoping for a soup with true coconut milk and s...

Great flavor! I stuck to the recipe except for leaving out one of the carrots and adding 1 chopped celery stalk when cooking the mushrooms. I agree with the previous reviewer that there wasn't ...

I agree totally with some of the others. Where was the liquid to call it a "soup"? First of all, Ashlou took the words right out of my mouth. This recipe was WAY too complicated! Too many dis...

Delicious! This tastes like something from a Thai restaurant. It is very rich, and was still rich with an added cup of water. I would highly recommend.

Really good soup. I didn't add the noodles, and put corn instead, and it was very tasty!

Great recipe!!
