Spicy Hot Prawn and Courgette and Mint & Spinach Soup

This is undoubtedly the King of Soups, no question, Its mega,the ice cold Courgette and Spinach with the back drop of of fresh Mint and the hot Morunos Prawn, this is michelin star food without the grief.

Like everything I make it's not difficult you can make it, and it's the perfect Dinner Party dish without hassle

Start by frying some finely chopped shallots in olive oil, so that they are translucent not browned, add some chopped courgette and give a good stir around, then when they are heated through add chopped fresh Spinach

Now turn the heat to full blast and add a large glass of white wine,let that reduce for two or three minutes.

Add a pint of Chicken Stock,and reduce the heat,season with salt and pepper and let it simmer for ten minutes

Now add a handful of finely chopped Mint, and take off the heat. when its cooled slightly blitz with a hand blender and let chill in the fridge.

Marinate the Morunos Prawns, See previous post, and chill the bowls in the fridge.

Get your griddle pan or BBQ very hot and cook the marinated Prawns on skewers couple of minutes each side until they are pink and succulent, pour the soup into the chilled bowls, drizzle some Chilli Oil on top and place the skewered Prawn on top. The very best King of Soups in our house enjoy with a glass of Champagne,I have had several, heaven.......
