  5. Then put the lid back on and place the measuring cup back. Press Pulse for 30 seconds and blend the prawn soup until all of the ingredients are turned into a fine pulp. Pour the prawn soup through a large and fine sieve (you can place a cheesecloth in it as well) over another large casserole and gently stir the soupy pulp until you end up with a slab of shrimp pulp. Press it well using the back of a spoon to get as many liquid out of it as possible.
