    TeresaS's Note:

    This is out of the Fall 2008 clean eating magazine...So I made this tonight...7/21/12...mine turned out very much like the photo in the was a pale yellow like chicken broth...not sure what happen with the 1st reviewer...I used steamed broccoli and threw in a touch of sliced chili pepper for additional color and heat...I do think that a splash of lime would really bring all the flavors together...hope you enjoy it!

      I followed the recipe to a T.
      For the veggies I used red bell peppers, peas and scallions.
      I love cilantro but this was just a little too much.
      The infused broth turned really dark green, almost brown and it did not look to appealing.
      The shrimp acquired that color also.
      Plus the 1 cup of chopped cilantro for garnish overpowers all the other flavors.
      I think the recipe has a ton of potential with just a little tweaking.

      Very tasty! I made half a recipe, skipped the microwave step, and did not strain! I used carrots, broccoli, and snow peas. I loved the bits of ginger and garlic in the broth. I did cut back on the cilantro, but not by much! Tagged for Rookie Recipes, due 01/05/14.

      Wow, we both loved this natural tasting soup. It was full of flavor and great textures, really quick and easy to make. I used yellow sweet peppers, green scallions and fresh peas for the vegetables in the soup. The shrimp were perfectly cooked, the broth was spicy and hot with a lovely after taste. I did cut back on the amount of cilantro used in the broth and garnish after reading the other reviews. Thank you for sharing this healthy recipe, which we will enjoy again.
