soup no. 3 – coconut shrimp

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

This is a throwback recipe to when I had a kitchen and when one of my sisters was doing the Whole30 (which I really want to do again – it’s such a wonderful body reset!). I’m so looking forward to finding a home here in QC and setting it up. I’m imagining that re-finding all my own kitchen supplies will be like Christmas Day! Looking forward to seeing my Creuset, my good kitchen knife, and my VeggiChop (which I promise to feature in a blog post soon because it’s my favourite tools in the kitchen) in particular.

This soup is unique and tasty! Not something I would be drawn to making at first glance, but it was so simple and the heat was perfect for a rainy evening. Give it a try!

coconut shrimp (whole30 approved!)

the ingreeds

  • 1 1/2 cups raw shrimp
  • 2 T coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup onion, diced
  • 3 medium cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, diced
  • 1 14 oz. can diced fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 T hot sauce
  • 1 medium lime, juiced for topping
  • avocado, chopped for topping
  • cilantro, chopped for topping

how you do

  • Heat coconut oil in your favourite soup-making pot over medium heat. Add onions and sauté until soft.
