It’s swimming shrimp today. I made my favorite for lunch, the butternut squash and coconut soup with shrimp. A mouthwatering, satisfying, and heavenly delicious dish. An easy butternut squash kick, with overwhelming ingredients that are combined perfectly. This is no doubt a very savory dish. A Thai-inspired soup that is rich, creamy, a little on the sweet side with a hint of spice. This is seriously a heck of a flavorful addition to your menu. Every gulp, every bite will give you a fantastic feeling, and a happy palate. This is unquestionably one of the best Thai dishes I have ever tasted! If you are a fan of diverse flavors, I am sure you’ll love this too.
