Thai Coconut Soup & Thai Fried Rice

This Soup is a Huge hit in my house!  I found in through StupidEasyPaleo.com.  I have made a few changes, but for the most part, it’s close to the original.

-FOR THE SOUP-

What You Will Need:

  • 14 ounces (420 ml) can full-fat coconut milk
  • 3 cups (475 ml) chicken stock
  • 1.5 pounds (454 grams) shrimp
  • 2 inch piece of ginger, peeled and chopped fine
  • 2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 2-3 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tsp sriracha (omit for Whole30)
  • Chopped cilantro for garnish
  • Green Onions sliced  thin (optional)
  • Salt/Pepper/Garlic powder

How it’s Done:

  1. Prepare the shrimp by peeling and deveining if not already done prior to purchase. (I like to get my shrimp started a little in the oven, I place them on a cookie sheet, season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  Cook at 350 for about 5-8 minutes or until shrimp begin to turn white)  Set aside for now.
  2. In a pot over medium heat, combine the coconut milk, chicken stock and ginger.
  3. Bring the liquid to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer.
  4. Add the shrimp, mushrooms, lime juice, and sriracha. Simmer until the shrimp (less than 5 min) is cooked through.
  5. Top with fresh chopped cilantro & onions for garnish.
