Shrimp and Sweet Corn Soup

Tonight I made another one of my recipes from my heart healthy cook book
This one was called shrimp and sweet corn soup
I was a nice spicy Mexican style soup full of veggies
It had an awesome flavor and it used very little salt but instead used chili powder and cumin to flavor it
Oh and the shrimp were awesome!
I used about a pound of peeled and deveined shrimp tail on
I tossed them with a heaping teaspoon of chili powder and one half teaspoon of cumin...that's it
Then I cooked them in a big nonstick pan so I didn't crowd them so they could all get a good sear
I cooked them on pretty high heat and it took less than 5 minutes to cook
These shrimp alone could be a really awesome appetizer!
Well anyway the soup had great flavor very much like the tortilla soup that I usually make
Oh so my mom isn't a big fan on shrimp or any sea food for that matter so she was kind of mad that I was making this tonight and she had been complaining about it but then when she tried the shrimp she really liked them and she just kept talking about how good they were
sometimes I feel like I'm HER mother lol
