Title: PORTUGUESE SHRIMP CREAM SOUP
Post by: isi on January 06, 2010, 05:31:05 pm
Hi everyone :)

Today I will set a recipe that I always like to do at festivals as a starter!
It is very simple and very tasty for shrimp lovers.

Name of Recipe:
SHRIMP SOUP
(http://i470.photobucket.com/albums/rr64/melgaco/DSC_0062.jpg)


Number of People:
6

Ingredients:
40 grams Flour
350 grams shrimp
800 grams of water
1 onion
2 tomatoes
25 grams olive oil
Salt and cayenne pepper
50 grams white wine
1 bouillon cube (fish or seafood)

Preparation:
Place the flour in a nonstick pan, toast lightly browned.

Peel the shrimp.

Now, in the TMX: shrimp shells and heads / Water - 8 min - Level 3 - 100 .
Thereafter, the contents through the TMX shifter (hope you say it this way - lol - I mean the Little basket with holes from the TMX - lol - its getting worst :D)  Isi is referring to the steaming basket here
Put shrimpwater aside and discard shells.

Now in Clean TMX:

Onion / Tomato - 8 sec - Level 5
Olive Oil - 10min - 100 - level 2

Now the toasted flour - 3 min - 100 - Level 2

Shrimpwater / wine / salt / Cayenepepper / bouillon cubes to and 20 min - 100 - Level 1

After this time, mix 1 minute at level 7!

Cut the peeled Shrimps into pieces and put them inside the cream now -  2 min - 100 -  ^^ :-:.

DONE ;)

Tips/Hints:

Serve warm with a sprinkle of fresh coriander and some croutons!

JulieO - We really enjoyed it, I mistakenly used 500g of prawns instead of 350g, so maybe it intensified the flavour slightly, but it was still very nice.  Again, another easy recipe and the only thing I had to change was when I put the shells into the water to cook, I found speed 3 too fast and was making the machine jump around a bit.  I turned down to speed 2 and it was all good.  Oh I also used a veg stock concentrate ice cube in place of the fish stock cube as I didn't have any. I can imagine the flavour would be even better tomorrow.  We have some left so will see.

JD - I made 1/2 quantity and we both loved it.  Thanks isi, it is really special so can understand you sharing it with friends & relatives. I used a few drops of fish sauce instead of bouillon cube.

Gert - Never throw those prawn heads and tails out. Make a stock and freeze or make a really concentrated stock and freeze in cubes. It is great for colour as well.

Chookie - This has become a favourite with us and visitors.  Thanks again Isi.

phatassphairy - I love this so much i am going to make it again ...right now for my dinner and lunch tomorrow.

Hi Isi

Another great recipe - thanks.  

I think we call the "TMX Shifter"  the "TMX basket" - so you nearly got it right.   I hope that you are not struggling too much with the English translation - all your instructions are wonderfully clear and I'm incredibly impressed with your recipes.

I'm very glad you've joined this Forum

Thanks Isi - love you using the shells of the shrimp (we call them prawns) to make the stock.

A Shifter is a tool which is to tighten/loosen nuts.  Sifter is for separating ingredients.  But as Katya says - we call it the TM basket

Great work.  Trying to learn Italian - trying harder now that you have shown how good your English is.

Made this for tea tonight along with isi's portuguese loaf to dip in.

We really enjoyed it, I mistakenly used 500g of prawns instead of 350g, so maybe it intensified the flavour slightly, but it was still very nice. 
Again, another easy recipe and the only thing I had to change was when I put the shells into the water to cook, I found speed 3 too fast and was making the machine jump around a bit.  I turned down to speed 2 and it was all good.  Oh I also used a veg stock concentrate icecube in place of the fish stockcube as I didn't have any.

I can imagine the flavour would be even better tomorrow.  We have some left so will see.

Really enjoyed your portuguese loaf dipped in this.  The hint of honey really complimented the soup IMO.

Thanks again for another great recipe, please keep them coming.  ;D

Ingredients:
40 grams Flour
350grams prawns already cooked ....
375 g of Campbell's real fish stock  
425 grams of water  
1 onion
2 tomatoes

small bunch of fresh garlic chives
20 grams olive oil  
Salt
1/4 teaspoon extra hot cayenne pepper
50 grams cream

Preparation:
Place the flour in a nonstick pan, toast lightly browned.

Peel the shrimp. my first step was
place prawns in  *: mixed for about 10 sec on speed 4 then set aside  ..... i need finer chunks atm  


Now, in the TMX: shrimp shells and heads / Water/fish stock  - 8 min - Level 2 - 100 .
Thereafter, the contents through the TMX shifter (hope you say it this way - lol - I mean the Little basket with holes from the TMX - lol - its getting worst )
Put shrimpwater aside and discard shells.

Now in Clean TMX:

Onion / Tomato/ chives/ sun dried tomatoes - 8 sec - Level 5
Olive Oil - 10min - 100 - level 2

Now the toasted flour - 3 min - 100 - Level 2

Shrimpwater / salt / Cayenne pepper / to and 20 min - 100 - Level 1

After this time, add 50ml of thickened cream  mix 1 minute at level 7!
