A wonderfully creamy and lightly spiced soup. Cooked prawns are added to a curried cream soup base. Serve with fresh crusty bread. You can also use any other shellfish, such as lobster or crab.

This is not your normal prawn cocktail! This recipe calls for lots of fresh coriander, cucumber, spring onions and chilli which gives the classic a Mexican flavour boost. It's a great colourful starter for a summer dinner party.
