Shrimp and Rice Soup

This is an excellent soup ! Be sure to remember the lime splash just before serving – it makes a big difference in the flavor.

Asian Shrimp Soup

This is a great quick soup that does not skimp on flavor. I usually add in a teaspoon of Asian chili garlic sauce to spice it up, but it is just as good without it. If you know you are having a heavier dinner, this makes a great light lunch with a piece of garlic toast or a cheesy bagel on the side.
