As you can guess from the title, today is my dad’s birthday!!! He lives far, far away so I will not be able to spend it with him 🙁  I do think he would really like this Roasted Red Pepper Soup with Grilled Shrimp, so I am posting it in honor of his special day…..

My step-sister Lisa… yes I have a sister named Lisa…yes it gets very confusing…had a mild heart attack last summer and went on some kind of soup diet. I’m not exactly sure how it works, but she told him all about it, and now he is now obsessed with soup! I hear he makes an awesome French Onion, but he still has not sent me the recipe, hint…hint. 😉

When he has too much soup left over, he gives it away to the neighbors. I can just imagine him walking up and down the street with containers full of soup! One of the neighbors really enjoyed it and wanted her husband to try it sometime. So the next time my dad made that particular soup, he took it down to their house. He started chatting with the man and everything is going great until the man tells him that he doesn’t live there, he is house sitting for them! Oh…well then…welcome to the neighborhood 🙂  If you knew my dad, you would be laughing too!

So HAPPY BIRTHDAY Dad, I wish I was there…..Enjoy your soup, or at least the photos of it 🙂

Now for the soup! I got the idea for this soup when I made the sea bass with the roasted pepper puree. I am not a fan of bell peppers, I don’t like the crunch, or the taste. But once you roast them, they are sweeter and have a much more mellow flavor. So I took the basics from the original recipe, and turned it into Roasted Red Pepper Soup with Grilled Shrimp. Alex likes to have some “meat” with his meals, so I added the shrimp. 🙂

How to make Roasted Red Pepper Soup with Grilled Shrimp:

Preheat broiler and move top shelf to 6″ below heat. Clean bell peppers with veggie wash, and dry completely. Place on a baking sheet and rub with oil.

Place in the oven and broil until all 4 sides are blackened 25 – 35 minutes…..
