Chilled Avocado Soup with Spicy Shrimp

  • Preparation 20 MIN
    Cooking 12 MIN
    Chilling 2 H
  • Servings 6



  1. In a skillet, soften the onion and garlic in 30 ml (2 tablespoons) of oil without browning, about 10 minutes.
  2. In a blender, purée the onion mixture, broth and the avocado flesh until smooth. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. In a skillet, sauté the shrimp in the remaining oil with the chili powder and Cayenne pepper until the shrimp changes color. Add the chives and blend well.
  4. Divide the cold soup into bowls. Garnish with the hot or warm shrimp on the centre of the soup.


The cold avocado soup tastes best the same day. The shrimp garnish is optional. It can also be garnished with Margarita Ceviche (Margarita Ceviche Recipe). In this case, thinly slice or cut the scallops into cubes.
