Spicy Shrimp & Baby Bok Choy Soup
Up at 5:30, to the gym, then the office, then an event, then the drive home. This leaves me at 8:30 p.m. with no dinner, and so late it's almost not worth it (not to mention the calories before heading to bed!).
So this soup was born. It literally takes 5 minutes. Total.
Swap out the protein, change up the vegetable, and it's still fast, easy, delicious and healthy. Maybe not so photogenic though...
Spicy Shrimp & Baby Bok Choy Soup:
4 c reduced sodium chicken broth
2 c water
1 tbs shrimp paste
1 tbs red chili paste
Dash salt (to taste)
Dash soy sauce (about a tsp)
Dash white pepper (about a tsp)
1 tsp-1 tbs chili sauce like sriracha
Dash fish sauce (about a tsp)
4 small bunches baby bok choy, cleaned and ends removed freeing each individual leaf
8-10 raw jumbo shrimp, peeled with tails on
Heat broth and water over high heat. Add all seasonings. Bring to a boil. Add bok choy and shrimp, let simmer 3-5 minutes until bok choy is wilted, shrimp is just cooked through and broth is piping hot. Serve immediately.
