Transport yourself to the islands with this Jamaican-inspired soup, full of fresh shrimp and sweet mangoes. We loved this soup with regular store-bought curry powder, but if you happen to have Jamaican-style curry powder, which has a hint of allspice, this is a great place to use it. Serve with brown basmati or jasmine rice with sliced pineapple for dessert.

Called my Bluff!

I don't like curry OR mango but tried this to have something different. I LIKED IT! I didn't use all the curry it called for because I was worried would be too strong and I only used half of a serrano pepper because didn't want to be too spicy. It had a GREAT flavor! Served it over brown rice, but I think the jasmine recommendation would have been a much better choice.

A feel good meal

I just made this recipe and it's really nice! I had all the ingredients except the mango, but I added peach instead and tasted really good. I served this one with brown rice made with jasmine tea and a simple salad with spinach, lettuce and walnuts. My husband was really happy and me too! It's the first time I tried this recipe. Maybe it's me, maybe the ingredients but after eat it you will feel awsome! It's a keeper recipe. Perfect for a weekend.

Tasty, easy, light
Jamaican curried shrimp and peach soup, brown rice made with jasmine tea and simple salad with walnuts.
Low effort, big flavor

I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe. Great flavor! I used 2 bags of frozen mangoes, Trader Joe's Yellow Curry Sauce, and clam juice; and the results were amazing. I added about 1/2 of the Serrano pepper and it gave it a nice flavor but didn't make it too spicy.

Quick to prepare
Sweet, fruity & delicious!

Made per the recipe, this had fantastic flavor, despite using mangos that were not particularly juicy or ripe. Served over brown rice, to make it a more substantial dinner. Considering adding some frozen peas next time. Highly recommended!

Quick to prepare, particularly if you purchase your shrimp already peeled & deveined
