Shrimp Ball Soup with Fresh Dill and Egg Noodles

This quick, easy soup which is a twist on a traditional meatball soup makes for a healthy, hearty meal any time of the year.  The substitution of shrimp for chopped hamburg makes a light soup perfect for cool spring evenings.  Since I just picked the first dill from our garden today, I will be making this tonight to serve alongside some homemade bread.

Shrimp Ball Soup with Fresh Dill and Egg Noodles


8 Cups low-sodium chicken broth (homemade is best of course)
2 Cups water
1 pound raw peeled shrimp
1/2 Cup milk
1/2 Cup plain breadcrumbs
1 bunch of scallions, green part chopped and separated roughly in half
2 Tablespoons fresh chopped dill
1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper
A handful of egg noodles (again, homemade is best!)

Bring the chicken broth and water to a boil in a large saucepan. Meanwhile, puree the shrimp, milk, bread crumbs, half of the chopped scallions, dill and lemon pepper in your food processor. Form into 1" balls, using an ice cream scoop.

Turn the broth down to a simmer and add the egg noodles, remaining chopped scallions and shrimp balls. Simmer for 10 minutes or until the noodles are cooked. The shrimp balls will turn pink, rise to the surface and bob around when they are done.

This soup is so easy to make, and served alongside some of my Cast Iron Pan French Bread makes a quick, hearty and delicious meal.

  4. That looks amazing! *sigh* Makes me really wish I could safely consume wheat gluten. (The stand-ins just aren't the same.) I may have to try a gluten-free version... like broth with the herbs (especially dill) and shrimp. Yum!

  5. This recipe sounds so good. Can't wait to try it!
