It is a simple recipe for a really delicate soup. It can be served as a festive appetizer or as a gourmet snack. * The fresh spices can be substituted by dried spices. * If you use canned shrimp, never let them boil. They would become tough and lose their delicate taste. : Difficulty: easy to moderate. : Time: 40 minutes. : Precision: approximate measurement OK.
