Pumpkin and Shrimp Soup

Niki

This unusual combination of pumpkin and shrimp is a surprise. Curry powder and chicken broth add flavor and aroma to an already fantastic fall soup. Serve it in a hollowed out pumpkin for company or for fun.

This was an excellent base recipe. I added a couple dashes of worcestershire sauce and habanero sauce to spice it up a bit. I will definately be using this recipe again.
