454g (1lb)Shrimp, cooked, shelled and roughly chopped
1Cucumber, skins and seeds removed
2Yellow or Green Tomatoes
1 cupParsley, Basil, and/or Mint
2 tbspSherry Vinegar or Red Wine Vinegar
2 tbspOlive Oil
1 cupCold Water or Vegetable Stock
To TasteSea Salt and Black Pepper


  1. Bring a small pot of water to a boil.
  2. Lightly score the bottom of your tomatoes with an X. Add to the boiling water. With a slotted spoon, remove the tomatoes after 60 seconds and place immediately into a bowl of ice water.
  3. Once the tomatoes are cool enough to handle, remove the tomato skins. Cut into quarters, and gently remove most of the seeds.
  4. In a blender, add remaining part of the tomato, avocado, cucumber, herbs, vinegar and water. Blend until smooth, add more water if necessary to thin out more.
  5. As the blender is running, drizzle in the olive oil. Season to taste.
  6. Divide your cooked shrimp into your bowls, and top with the green gazpacho soup. And some fresh herbs and a small drizzle of olive oil to finish.


  • ​Diarrhea means that you are experiencing three or more loose watery bowel movements in one day. This may be from radiation therapy that focuses on your stomach, pelvis or back, chemotherapy medications, or surgery. ​ 
  • Fats can somtimes make diarrhea worse. If that applies to you, limit the amount of oil and avocado you use in this recipe.
  • Fibre may cause diarrhea for some people. Fibre is part of the plant that your body cannot breakdown. There are 2 kinds: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fibre soaks up water and slows down movement while insoluble fibre does not take in water and speeds up movement. 
  • Aim to eat more soluble fibre, and remove the skins, seeds and membranes from vegetables and fruit.
  • Talk to your doctor about the possibility of taking medications to help with diarrhea. ​
  • Be sure to include more foods that are suggested in the "Eating Hints For People with Diarrhea" handout from Princess Margaret and/or speak to a Registered Dietitian
