Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For the soup, place sweet potatoes, a cup of the coconut milk and the broth in a stock pot. Bring to a low boil and simmer 15 minutes until the sweet potatoes are soft.
  2. Place potatoes and liquid in a food processor and blend until smooth, adding lime juice and the remaining coconut milk as needed.
  3. For the shrimp, mix together the ingredients in a plastic bag. Marinade the cleaned shrimp for one hour in the fridge. Broil or grill shrimp for five minutes until done.
  4. For the bananas, place banana slices in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Broil 2-3 minutes. Turn bananas over and broil another minute or two until they are a bit soft and lightly browned.
  5. Ladle soup into bowls and top with shrimp. Serve condiments in small bowls on the side.
