Jamaican Curried Shrimp & Mango Soup

January/February 2011

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (98 votes)

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.

My Family Loved It!

It was so easy to make. I used 2 extra cloves of garlic, and instead of adding it after the onions, I turned the fire to medium-low, added the oil, THEN the garlic and let it slowly infuse with the oil until it turned a nice golden color. It really brings out that garlicky flavor. After that, I turned the fire back to medium and followed the recipe as stated.

And don't skip out on the dried thyme! It really makes a wonderful difference.

I used chicken broth instead, and it turned out amazingly good.

And I added cilantro with the scallions.

Overall, it was so, so good. Mangos in a soup? After this, I say yes.

Extremely simple and quick to prepare!
One of the quickest (for that much flavor) and easiest soup I've ever made.

No where to post personal notes and comments.

I made minor changes and additions but nowhere is there a category for comments under 'My Recipes'.
Added chopped cilantro.
Added chopped fresh ginger.
Added cumin.
Added more garlic.
Would like to add sliced lime next time.

Very tasty

Easy and Delicious!

I'm not really a fan of mango, but my husband likes weird things so I decided to try this. The mixture of flavors truly is phenomenal. I followed the recipe to the T, and it was amazing and surprisingly very filling. The flavors and textures are so interesting, but in a wonderful way.

super easy, smells good, tastes good

Its Easy to Make This Flavorful Dish

It was negative 0 degrees yesterday and a hot, rich and spicy soup was exactly what I wanted. Perfect timing to make this recipe! Although I needed it to be a little heartier for my own taste and mood (I added long grain white rice and some sausage) this recipe has made a home in my recipe binder.

What a great and easy way to insert some really interesting flavors into a weeknight dinner. I was surprised so much flavor came from simply using curry and thyme. I wonder what a bay leaf or 2 would add?

Great level of spice, rich, and pretty simple to make

depth of flavor, satisfying dish

This is a great one dish meal. It is tasty and has quite a satisfying mouth feel. It is a great balance of sweet and savory and sour and salty. A little crunch on the side with toasted pita was all I needed.

easy to fix, common ingredients
