Seafood and Pumpkin Soup
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Use any seafood as desired, even some already cooked crab or shrimp, etc.
1 small pumpkin or winter squash, to yield about 1 - 1 1/2 cups pulp
Wash the pumpkin or squash. Cook in the microwave 4 minutes. Using a kitchen towel, remove from the oven and allow to cool a few minutes, or until you can comfortably slice it in half. Remove the seeds. Place the 2 halves cut sides down on a glass or ceramic plate. Cook another 2 - 3 minutes, or until it is fork tender. Allow to cool. When you can handle it, using a small spoon remove the pulp from the skin. You should get 1 - 1 1/2 cups or so. More or less will work! Using a potato masher or the food processor, make a nice smooth pulp and place in a saucepan. Add the stock, salt, and thyme and bring to a low boil stirring to make a smooth mixture. Carefully add the seafood of choice and cook several minutes until done. Taste and correct seasonings as desired, and serve!
