      Hot and Sour Shrimp Soup

      Rich and savory Hot and Sour Shrimp Soup is a melody of ingredients that can be served as a side or main entree. Perfect for lunch or dinner and on any occasion. This recipe and method of preparation will bring a coveted dish to your table. To describe the slight crunch of the mushrooms and bamboo that harmoniously add texture to the appetite quenching broth would not do justice to how satisfying this dish really is. Follow these instructions and stick to the recipe for tender large shrimp that will burst with sweetness as the egg particles create a creamy consistency that will solidify this soup as a balanced pleasing meal on your menu of home cooked dishes.

      When it comes to hot and sour soup, I prefer my soup to be “fully” loaded with meat (shrimp, chicken or pork), tofu, mushrooms, bamboo, dried wood ear mushrooms and eggs. You can add other vegetables to the soup but recognize cook times and flavors may vary. As with most dishes the garnish sets the visual tone and creates a fresh appeal. Simply top this dish with fresh chopped green onions and white pepper prior to serving. The crisp onions and spice of the pepper will stew to a perfume of delightful invitation as the symphony of herbal tones and chicken broth cascade from the serving dish.

      This recipe is one of my personal favorites! Hot and sour soup reminds me of going out for dinner with my family and celebrating special occasions during my youth. I have worked for several years to try and recreate my best experiences of this dish in my own home. I believe this recipe is of a quality worthy of sharing and highly recommend you give it a try. Congregate with your friends and family over a nice hot bowl of soup for your next foodlicious experience. Remember to return to a boil prior to adding additional ingredients and serve this soup fresh off the stove. Watch the video and check out the instructions prior to preparation and you will achieve a classic fully loaded home cooked Hot and Sour soup full of tender mushrooms and juicy shrimp.

      Bamboo, fresh shiitake mushrooms and dried wood ear mushrooms.

      Extra large shrimp, homemade chicken broth (or carton of your favorite is fine), eggs and tofu.

                Shrimp Ceviche

                This Ceviche recipe calls for fresh raw shrimp, red onion, English cucumber, tomatoes, jalapeno and cilantro. An authentic approach for eating this dish is to let the shrimp chemically cure/cook in lime Juice and salt as a marinade. Simply place the marinating shrimp in the refrigerator for the required amount of time to enjoy just how tender, tangy and juicy they turn out. I love this as an appetizer.  

                It’s a very healthy, simple, quick meal to prepare and is very low in carbohydrates. This is a good choice for those times you want to cut back on red meat.

                This can be eaten as appetizer, a light meal or snack. Just follow the simple recipe and check out the short video above and you will be on your way to enjoying this appetite quenching meal.

                We enjoy ours served with tostadas but you can change that up and have yours with chips, crackers or salad. 

                Traditional recipes usually pair with tostadas:

                Also, can be eaten as a snack with chips:
