  • Stir in Swanson® Chicken Broth; add potatoes. Season with curry powder; add salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil, then reduce temperature to low. Simmer 20 minutes.

  • Stir in milk; add shrimp. Heat until soup just starts to simmer again.

Cook's Note:

The recipe uses milk to keep the soup light, but substitute cream for the milk and you have a richness factor that adjusts the recipe from delicate to decadent.
