Shrimp & Corn Soup Recipe

I prefer to eat soup in the winter to eating it during the summer. Most of you are likely with me on that, as we need something to warm us up in the winter and cooler, fresher items in the summer! However, I find I often get stuck on making a similar broth based soup recipe, and was looking for something to spice things up a little bit and found this soup recipe and with a few swaps on ingredients came up with one that both my family and I truly enjoy!!

shrimp and corn soupIngredients:

  • 2 tsp olive oil
