Shrimp Soup

I made this soup on a whim, I was sitting in my kitchen thinking out loud to Buttercup my beautiful Yorkie and said to her I am feeling like soup again Yes I know I just made a cream of broccoli soup and I am just in  a soup mode since August ended. This soup is made from what I had in my pantry and believe me it came together in no time at all.

Shrimp Soup

  • 12-14 large shrimps (deveined, rinse and cut in to 3 pieces)
  • 1/3 thin spaghetti
  • 1 tbsp olive oil (extra virgin)
  • 3-4 carrots (chopped into about 1 inch in thickness)
  • 2 scallions stalks (chopped into 1/2 inches)
  • 2 tsp chives (fresh)
  • 1 15 oz can beef broth (low sodium)
  • 3 cups water
  • 1/4 tsp chicken base
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp soy sauce (low sodium)
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  1. In a pot of boiling water add the spaghetti and cook for about 6 minutes only drain and set aside.

    In a small pot cook the carrots until done for about 12 to 15 minutes until tender drain and set aside.

    In medium pot add the beef broth, 3 cups of water and add the chicken base on low heat.

    In a skillet on medium heat add the shrimps and cook for about 3 minutes only about 1 minute and a 1/2 on each side they will continue to cook in the pot with the broth.

    once done add the shrimp, spaghetti carrots, scallions, soy sauce and fish sauce into the pot with the broth and season with the salt and pepper to your taste and let cook for about 10 minutes covered.

    Once cooked serve in a bowl and garnish with the fresh chives.

This soup is good to eat if you have a cold b or if you don’t it have such a healing effect.  It is such a light and airy soup. I hope you enjoy this soup as much as I have.

I live in New York I am Married to Clifford aka Jack and have one daughter name Kaneen aka Nene and a beautiful Yorkie name Buttercup aka Butter, Stinkbutt and Grandma. I was raised and born in Brooklyn New York. I have a love for cooking and it is my passion as I have discovered and I would like to share it with you. I like just relaxing at home with my Buttercup while thinking of what dish I can try an tackle or in my backyard gardening. I love watching cooking shows Giada, Barefoot Contessa, The Neely's , The Pioneer Women, Rachel Ray, Paula Deen and Bobby Flay are my favorites. I love to talk to people face to face or on social media, twitter i just started and it is cool because you must say what you have to say short, sweet and fast you only get a few wpm. ( words per minute). I love house music also yes I do especially when I am driving in my car... This is a new journey that I am on and I known sometimes It may seem like a roller coaster from time to time but I am willing to try and explore new things and new recipes as well. Cooking is truly my passion I have known for a very, very long time and because I am a chatter box I guess blogging about my food and talking in general should be easy, well maybe.... I look forward to sharing the foods that I love to make and also some new ones along the way...
