Cucumber Gazpacho with Shrimp and Melon

This is a refreshing, healthy and delicious soup; perfect for a midweek treat!

Cooling cucumber and melons—which are in the same botanical family—are good sources of a wide range of nutrients, including vitamins C and B6 and folate. Fresh herbs provide a burst of flavor as well as powerful antioxidants. Ginger, garlic, and hot sauce have potent anti-inflammatory properties. Starting your meal with a low-calorie, fiber-rich soup like this one can help fill you up and prevent overeating. 

Note: You can substitute cooked lobster or prawns for the shrimp, or make the recipe vegetarian by omitting the seafood altogether.

  • 1 3/4 large cucumbers, peeled, seeded, and coarsely chopped (about 3 1/4 cup), plus 1/4 large cucumber, peeled, seeded, and cut into small dice for garnish (about 1/4 cup)
  • 2 scallions (white and green parts), coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup (loosely packed) assorted fresh herbs, such as basil, chives, and mint, coarsely chopped, plus ¼ cup finely chopped (for garnish)
  • 1 (1/2-inch) piece fresh ginger, coarsely chopped
  • 1 small clove garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup plain 0% total greek yogurt
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1/4 pound large shrimp (31 to 40 count per pound) peeled, cooked, and cut into medium dice (about 8 shrimp)
  • 1/2 cup seedless watermelon or cantaloupe, cut into small dice

In blender or food processor, combine coarsely chopped cucumber, scallions, coarsely chopped herbs, ginger, garlic, olive oil, and yogurt and process until smooth, about 1 minute. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper, and hot sauce, then transfer to large airtight container and refrigerate 1 hour or up to 4 hours.

In small bowl, stir together shrimp and remaining cucumbers, herbs, and salt.

Fold watermelon or cantaloupe into soup. Divide soup evenly among 4 chilled bowls and top each with dollop of shrimp mixture. Serve immediately.
