Thai Coconut Seafood Soup

Happy Friday ya’ll! I hope your weeks flew by just like mine did. Anyone have anything fun planned for the weekend?

If you’re looking for me, I’ll probably be riding around ALL of San Francisco on my gnarly new road bike that I just got last night. Yes I just said gnarly. Does that make me an official Californian? Probably not. Shout out to Chris at Salvation Cycles for hooking me up with this awesome refurbished bike and showing me how to even ride a road bike in general. Because I have no clue what I’m doing and almost crashed about 7 times while test riding it. Here goes nothing!

Anywhoooooo onto the real reason I’m here chatting with you guys today. Who remembers that delicious looking seafood soup I made during my Whole30 that I ranted and raved about? Yeah? Yeah? Well guess what – it’s your lucky day! I finally have the (not so) secret recipe just for you.

I know what you’re probably thinking, “What the heck Heather. Why would I ever eat soup during the hottest month of summer when it’s 90 degrees out and all I want is refreshing cold watermelon and pink and/or green freeze pops at all times?” Oh is that just me? Okay cool. Well fear not! This soup is super light, refreshing and makes you feel like you’ve temporarily been transported to a tropical island. Seriously. Coconut, shrimp, scallops – it doesn’t get much more tropical than that! Oh and BACON. Because bacon.
