  • Serves 4 to 6
  • 5 ears of corn
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup 2 per cent milk
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice

In This Recipe
  1. With a large chef's knife, remove kernels from corn cobs. With a butter knife, press and slide along corn cobs to remove liquid left in cobs. (NOTE: this should yield about 4 cups kernels and 1/3 cup liquid.)
  2. Reserve about 1 cup of corn kernels. Working in two batches, blend in blender 3 cups of corn, liquid from cobs, yogurt, milk, lime juice and hot sauce. Strain through a sieve and discard solids. Taste and add salt and pepper as desired. Cover and chill for about 30 minutes.
  3. Dice most of the shrimp, reserving a few whole shrimp as garnishes. Stir reserved 1 cup of corn kernels and diced shrimp into soup. Spoon soup into bowls and then garnish with reserved whole shrimp, diced tomato and avocado pieces. Serve immediately.
