Pumpkin Carrot Soup with Curried Shrimp

A few weeks ago, when I went to the dentist's, I picked up a magazine and saw a recipe for coconut carrot soup with curried shrimp, so I was inspired to make this pumpkin carrot soup with curried shrimp, using only turmeric as the curry spice. It may not seem like turmeric is that strong of a spice (aside from its color), but its flavor is actually pretty potent when it's the only spice being used --- of course, you can use regular yellow curry powder, but I think the turmeric actually sufficed!

2-3 pieces of shrimp, peeled and deveined

pinch of salt
oil, to cook with

to garnish:
2 small pieces of scallion/green onion
fresh thyme


1. Boil some water in a small pot.
2. Add the carrots and onion, and cook until softened
3. Let the carrots/onion cool before blending them (with the water) in a blender with the pumpkin puree
4. Dredge the shrimp in the turmeric/curry powder and sprinkle some salt on top.
