Chilled Cucumber Soup with Prawns and Dill

Labels: { , , }

© 2020 | | © 2020 |

Cool and refreshing cucumber soup with succulent prawns is just perfect for the summer months! Probiotics in both kefir and yoghurt can help maintain regular bowel movements, especially the kefir is a powerhouse of good bacteria for your gut, and support the immune system. The addition of fresh dill also helps stimulate digestion if you struggle with bloating.

  • 2 Lebanese cucumbers, deseeded and grated
  • 1 tbsp Chopped dill fronds
  • 250 g Greek yoghurt
  • 200 g Kefir
  • Sea salt
  • Fresh milled white pepper 2 tbsp Freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 slice Sandwich bread
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 100 g Prawns, cooked and peeled, leaving tails intact
  1. Wash the small Lebanese cucumbers well. Dry and remove the seeds. Finely grate the cucumber using a box grater. You can also cut them into the very small dices.
  2. Wash, dry and finely chop the dill. Mix the Greek yoghurt and kefir in a large bowl. Stir in grated cucumber and chopped dill. Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Divide the soup in 2 soup bowls.
  3. Cut the slice of bread into cubes. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-heat. Stir in minced garlic and bread cubes until crusty and golden. Add in prawns and cook briefly.
  4. Top the soup with crusty crountons and prawns. Garnish with more dill fronds if desired. | © 2020 | | © 2020 |

What a perfect summer dish. Other than gazpacho, I haven’t served a cooling summer soup in some time. Love the flavours you’ve paired too, very impressive.

cucumber and yogurt soup is the perfect match for this really hot and humid weather we have been having. I would need to leave out the shrimp, but with or without the shrimp your soup looks absolutely delicious and cooling.

Marcelle 16/7/20 14:34

Angie, I seriously just told my husband that I wanted to find some amazing, savory chilled soup recipes besides gazpacho (and we love gazpacho LOL) This is a must-try dish!! Gorgeous :)

Pattie @ Olla-Podrida 17/7/20 01:04

This looks delicious! It is so beautifully photographed as well. It makes me wish as though my planted dill had grown rather than just refusing to come up out of the ground. I love dill, but it never seems to want to grow for me. I'll be printing this out.

Happy Retiree's Kitchen 17/7/20 13:43

I will definitely make this next Summer, it looks so refreshing. It's time for hot soups here right now, so I am making the most of it.

As cool as cucumber :D just in time for summer and I love every element in your home-crafted soup

Ron 18/7/20 08:19

Angie, I drink kefir daily as I find it's good for my tummy. So, your dish sounds perfect for a warm evening meal. The Lebanese cucumbers sound delicious in this, and prawns and croutons must make for a powerhouse of a dish. Thanks for sharing.
