Thai Shrimp Soup

(make sure to read to the bottom for a printable recipe and a giveaway!)

I have a secret. And I’m going to tell you. I have a little band of blogging friends that help keep me afloat on this blog. We bounce ideas off of each other, encourage one another, and simply HELP each other navigate the ever-evolving blog world. These are the ladies that I do BlogFilmFood with each month- one of my favorite posts each month! I’m so thankful for these ladies.

This month, my friend Kirsten chose the movie Jaws because she’s spunky like that. I’ll have to admit, I totally intended on watching the movie before today, but it just didn’t happen. But I do remember watching it as a young adult and loving it- if you can love a movie that involves scary creatures and fear. Anyway, each of us are creating a recipe that relates to the movie.

This spicy thai shrimp soup is deliciously cream, spicy, and flavorful. Also It's Paleo and Whole 30 compliant! Hooray!

I created Thai Shrimp Soup- it’s a favorite at our house and is even Whole-30 friendly if I leave out the noodles! I first tasted a version of this soup with my friend Linda at a Thai restaurant over 3 years ago and I sought out to recreate it at home. Although I don’t think I got it exactly right just yet, it’s still delicious. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Also, don’t miss these ladies’ posts! Brenda made Shrimp Avocado Salsa,

Kathy made Garlic Butter Shrimp Pasta

Kirsten made Easy Fish Tacos

and Miranda made Shark Bait Soother!
