A very very happy Halloween to you all. When its Halloween it means loads of pumpkin in your kitchen counter. So today I thought to share a delicious, healthy pumpkin soup with shrimp. The combination of pumpkin and shrimp may seem unusual but this can be a surprisingly, delicious, fantastic fall soup which everyone can enjoy. Pumpkin soup with shrimp is easy, simple and very quick to make. So taste this wonderful soup and let me know how you arrange your Halloween party where terror turned into a treat!
Pumpkin puree 1 cup Chicken stock 2 cups Shrimp 6 to 8 Garlic 1 tsp chopped Butter/diet butter 1tsp Sugar a pinch Corn starch 1tsp (optional) Salt and pepper to taste
First wash and devein the shrimp and marinate it with little lemon juice and pinch of salt. Now in a pan heat butter add chopped garlic and the shrimp stir for a minute then add pumpkin puree and chicken stock (you can use plain water if you want) let it boil for 5 to 6 minutes. Then add sugar, salt and pepper. Mix well. If you want thick consistency of your pumpkin soup then mix cornstarch with two table spoon of water and add it to the soup. Boil it for another minute or two you will get your desired consistency a thick yummy soup. You can make it richer by adding fresh cream but my waist line will not permit me to be that liberal so I leave that creamy part and have this wonderfully delicious pumpkin shrimp soup with warm crusty bread and believe me its yuuuuuumy!
Be Happy And Stay Healthy.
