Lemon Dill Shrimp Soup Recipe

Lemon Dill Shrimp Soup

Prep Time 10 minutes

I don't usually serve warm soups in the summer, but once in a while a day will present itself cool and blustery and then I feel comfortable serving this one. The bright flavors of dill and lemon complement the shrimp well. This can be served as a first course or as part of a light lunch.
