Instructions

  1. Place tomatoes, cucumbers, and red peppers in a food processor or blender; add in tomato juice, scallions, Jalapeno pepper, garlic, olive oil, vinegar, cumin, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Do not puree completely. The soup should have a little crunch. If you blend too long, you’ll have a bowl of foam!
  3. Place chunky pureed soup in a serving bowl or pitcher and chill before serving.
  4. Just before serving drop in the shrimp which have had the shells removed.
  5. Garnish with 1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil leaves or cilantro or a few tablespoons of minced cucumbers and red peppers.
