Spicy shrimp and wild rice soup (Chinese)


This is one of our favorite soups. If you're not a seafood lover, this could be the ideal thing to start with to get more open to the seafood experience. Also a good start to get introduced to Chinese cuisine. It's not too spicy (depending on how much chili powder you feel like adding), and the watery part of it tastes like the ideal addition to the wild rice and the shrimps. Goes perfectly with a home-made bread. Enjoy :)

Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 50 g butter
  • 2 small white onions
  • 25 g chives
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 liter vegetable stock
  • lemon slices for serving
  • 150 g wild and red rice
  • salt and pepper to taste, optionally (if the stock isn't already seasoned enough)


Put the butter in a large pot and begin melting it on low-medium heat:

Meanwhile chop up the onions finely:

Also chop up the chives. Add both the onions and chives to the butter and let them fry a little:

After they're softened, add the crushed garlic and the chili powder. Leave for a couple of more minutes, then add the stock:

Bring the stock to a simmer, then add the rice and the shrimps:

Leave for 10 minutes. Serve warm, with a slice of lemon and extra chopped chives on each soup bowl. Dig in! :)
