Galapagos/Ecuadorian soup.. help!

maroonedonmars | Apr 27, 2008 08:44 PM

I've recently come back from a trip to Isla Isabela in the Galapagos. I am trying to find the name/recipe of one soup I had there. I had it two or three times but never was told the name. It was served before the main lunch, and consisted of shrimp & corn cob in either a light greenish or cream colored broth. It was very simple, no other vegetables floating in the broth. It was more like a light chowder. Sometimes they put in chunks of their white soft cheese. The closest thing I could find was "Chupe de mariscos," but I could only find information about this being a Peruvian dish. Is it the same thing? Does anyone have an authentic recipe? I would love to make this for my Spanish class.
