I gave this a 4 star because it was reltively tasty, and very low in calories. I was looking for a fast, low calorie recipe and this fit the bill. I could not find shrimp consomme, so I substituted vegetable broth instead. I usually hate reviews where people change the recipe (especially things that clearly effect the taste) and then review it, but I had no choice in this case. Read More

I added chow mein noodles to make the soup heartier. For me it was low on flavor, but my 9 year old loves it. I will definitely be making this again. Read More

The flavor is good but there isn't much substance. Add some noodles or rice and you have substance and a 5 star soup to compliment your Asian meal. I will use this often. Thanks! Read More

Tasty simple recipe. Couldn't find shrimp consomme either so used twice the beef broth instead. Cut the size of the broth to a quarter of that in the recipe but used the same amount of dill and green onion so there was lots of flavor. also added low carb shirataki noodles. Read More

This soup is ready in a flash which is great! I agree with other reviewers that it needs something more. I added kale when the shrimp went in and I though it was a tasty and healthy addition. I also sprinkled shredded parmesan on the top before serving. I will make this again. Read More

This is a very nice soup about 3 maybe almost 4 star. However it is SO simple to raise it a star even two by using fresh shrimp added JUST late enough to cook properly (it just takes a few 3-4 minutes!) to cook. If you are worried about having enough shrimp flavor sack up some clean (no legs!) shrimp shells in small square of cheesecloth & add at the beginning of the heating process. Remove when they have improved the flavor & definitely (as you probably can guess before serving! (LOL! Ask me why I state this!!). I would add fresh chopped scallions on top for garnish. Read More
