Lobster and shrimp soup, from Taste of Beirut

Lobster and shrimp soup, from Taste of Beirut (on Soup Chick).

Tahini gives this lobster and shrimp soup from Taste of Beirut its unusual color and flavor. As Joumana says, if you don't like tahini (sesame paste), this soup isn't for you! The flavor is kicked up with wonderful spices -- saffron, paprika, cardamom -- and brightened with fresh orange or lemon juice. With lobster and shrimp, this is a special-occasion soup for many of us, but one that will surely impress your guests.

Wow, that soup looks and sounds amazing! I absolutely love all the ingredients in it. While I have never had tahini in soup (not that I am aware of anyway), combining it with these ingredients seems like a very good place to start. :-)

Thanks, Lydia!

Shirley, tahini is really an interesting component here.

Kalyn, agreed!

Donna, this luxurious soup would make a good first adventure into Lebanese soup making.
