Soup Series – Prawn Soup

This is the ideal soup to serve when you hosting a Winter lunch or dinner , there’s  no word but divine when describing the last soup in my Soup Series.Its a pretty expensive soup to make seeing as I spent close to R 200.00 for 800g of prawns but like I said its well worth it.

  • 750g of Prawns ( I buy the already headless and peeled prawns)
  • 2 Onions (Med)
  • 4 Garlic Gloves
  • 1 Pkt of Carrots
  • 2 Turnips (Med)
  • 1 Tomato (Med)
  • ¼ Red Pepper
  • ¼ Green Pepper
  • ½ Chili
  • Sprinkle with Black Pepper to taste
  • Parsley
  • Olive Oil

Method:

Cook deveined prawns in water and salt for +/- 10 minutes, peel skins and cut into pieces (stock – you can make fish stock out of the skins and prawn heads)

Chop veggies into same size pieces in order to cook evenly.

Add a dab of olive oil to the bottom of your pot and fry the onions and garlic until transparent, add a little water and add the carrots, tomato, turnips and peppers until soft.

Liquidize all the vegetables once cooked. Then add the prawn stock (sieve leaving behind the skins and heads) and prawn pieces, bring to the boil and add the parsley. Allow to stand for a while.

Serve with toasted bread cut into small squares (croutons) or Woolworths Toasties.
