Recieta de Sopa de Camarao – Shrimp Soup Recipe

10 Jun

Sopa de camarao/ Shrimp or prawn soup is a light creamy soup with the bold flavors of shrimps/prawns. This is a soup of the portuguese past days in Goa. I guess in our household we ate a lot of vegetable soup with macaroni and bread soup made from previous day leftover bread. I think I must have made this recipe once’s or twice. If you visit Goa it would be a hard soup to find compared to the chinese soups that are popular in Goa.

What I love about the soup other than it’s very seafood smell πŸ™‚ is that it is a lighter soup compared to clam chowder. Adding diced potatoes and tomatoes is an option. I have added tomatoes Β for some color. I do want to mention that I used red onions as I forgot my grocery bag with white onions at the grocery store till I was ready to cook and realized I left one whole bag of groceries at the store on my way out.

Serving Size: 4-6

Ingredients:

20-25 small shrimps shelled and deveined

1/2 finely diced white onions

3 tbsp of butter

3 cloves of garlic diced finely

1 small tomato diced finely

3 tbsp of white flour

3 cups water

1 cup milk

1 vegetable bouillon

salt to flavor

Directions:

Wash the shrimps, apply a little salt keep aside.

Melt butter in a pot add the chopped onions and saute till soft.

Next add the tomatoes, garlic and saute for 1 minute.

To this add the flour and mix it for about a minute.

Gently add a little water to form a roux and take out all lumps.

Add the shrimps/ prawns and the remaining water stir gently and cook on medium heat till it comes to a boil.

Finally add 1 cup cold milk, season with bouillon and salt. Bring it to a boil again.

Serve hot with some oyster cracker, saltines or croutons. When we were kids we also dipped bread in theΒ soup (psst…I still do it πŸ™‚ )

    Lovely Nandini – I expected it to involve a few spices – so surprised to see its spice free….

    • Nandini June 14, 2016 at 12:23 pm #

      Yes Laura, it is a very simple recipe as compared to the sopa’s from the rest parts of the world the flavor is all from the camarao with a hint of butter and garlic πŸ™‚

  7. cookingwithshy June 10, 2016 at 8:47 pm #

    Wow!!! simple and flavourful!!! I guess the garlic and tomatoes must lend a great punch to this soup…

    • Nandini June 14, 2016 at 12:25 pm #

      Yes Shy, I liked the combination of them both the slight acidity from the tomatoes made the difference to a very savory soup πŸ™‚

  24. Antusa Rodrigues Dasgupta June 11, 2016 at 6:21 pm #

    Sopa de Camarao sounds delicious. However, it should read Receita de Sopa de Camarao.

    • Nandini June 14, 2016 at 3:56 pm #

      Thank You Antusa for the correction. I was being lazy and thought the 2 “de” would be too confusing. I will take your advise and do the corrections πŸ™‚

  25. ForTheLoveOfCookbooks# June 11, 2016 at 7:59 pm #

    This looks like a really quick and tasty recipe. Like you say in your intro, I like the fact that it seems to be a lighter version of a chowder which I can often find too rich. I have all the ingredients for this right now so I might make it this week…looks great for a week night meal πŸ™‚

    • Nandini June 14, 2016 at 3:59 pm #

      Thank You so much. It is perfect for a week night with some bread on the side as it is quick to whip it up πŸ™‚

  26. pmetro June 12, 2016 at 6:18 am #

    good use for shrimp, will have to try this and scale it to a smaller portion, similar to a chowder recipe. YUM !

    • Nandini June 14, 2016 at 4:01 pm #

      Thank You so much πŸ™‚
