If you are tired of grilling corn or making nice summery corn salads, cool down with this flavorful creamy corn soup topped with a light and refreshing shrimp and cucumber salad! Perfect for the summer days and really can be put together in no time!
The soup is only a handful of ingredients. Fresh basil and ginger are steeped into the soup and then strained out. The aroma is amazing!
Milk or cream is not needed! The natural thickening agents in corn (corn starch) will thicken it up nicely. When shucking the corn, make sure to get the milk, it will add more flavor and help to thicken. Also, reserved the cobs to make a quick corn stock.
