Miso Shrimp Soup

I am so excited to share this recipe with you guys. In recent months, I’ve become quite infatuated with miso soup, ramen, pho, etc. In fact, pho was my main attraction when we traveled to Cincinatti over Thanksgiving. You’ll hear all about that on Friday though. Anyways, we’ve made several homemade versions AND I go to my favorite local spots to get my fix regularly.

Kara and I were both in agreement that we had to try this recipe as soon as possible. Cliff doesn’t like shrimp which I was completely fine with that because….more for us.

I love that this recipe came together quickly since lots of soups want to be simmered for hours on end. No time for that in our world. This one is done in under 30 minutes and the flavors are bold, delicious and warm. With the addition of fresh garlic, ginger, basil and lemongrass the flavors really pop in your mouth. And the kick from the sriracha and chili oil are the perfect finishing touch. Of course the enormous shrimp don’t hurt either. 🙂

A definite recipe winner in our opinion!
