    flower7's Note:

    This originally came from a Weight Watchers cookbook and I adapted it slightly for a chili cookoff at work. It ended up as a finalist and was voted "Most Memorable". I really enjoyed the flavor and it is very quick to put together, which is even better! 4 WW points for 1 cup serving.

      This is excellent. I didn't have fresh ginger so used just a bit of dry ginger. I think I would add less lime juice next time--I tasted the soup before I added it and liked it better than with the lime.

      Holy Moly this is good. I made this last night to go with some other asian dishes and this was fantastic. The shrimp were cooked perfectly and the flavor from the coconut milk and the chili paste were so yummy. We really like this alot and will make again,its so easy but tastes like so much more effort got put into it. Thank you for sharing this with us.

      Great soup! I'm not rating this because I made some changes. I used regular coconut milk and I accidentally added 3 tablespoons sriracha instead of 2-3 teaspoons of chili paste so I added another can of coconut milk then added 1 cup chicken broth to make it more soupy (it was thick and more stew-like.) I added 2 big cloves of garlic. I used 12 oz shrimp for the whole thing, and about 3 cups of quartered baby portabella mushrooms. I used white instead of brown sugar, but didn't notice it in the end product. I did use Rotel tomatoes. We loved this soup, and thankfully the heat diminished as we ate. So delicious, and glad I had doubled the recipe in the end. :)
