Preparation steps


Rinse celery, trim and cut into thin slices. Rinse scallions, trim, shake dry and cut into thin rings. Blanch tomato in boiling water, rinse with cold water, peel, quarter, core and cut flesh into small cubes. Clean the mushrooms and chop. Peel the garlic and place in a pan with hot oil. Cook until translucent.


Add celery and scallions, sauté briefly and deglaze with the broth. Stir in peanut butter and season the soup with pepper. Simmer 15-20 minutes over medium heat. Meanwhile, rinse the shrimp and drain well.


Toast the peanuts in a frying pan and remove from pan. Melt the butter in the same pan and fry the shrimp on both sides for 2-3 minutes, turning frequently. Season with salt and pepper. Add mushrooms to the soup, stir in the diced tomatoes and cream, bring to a boil and season again. Pour the soup into preheated soup bowls and serve garnished with toasted nuts and shrimp.
