Hot and Sour Prawn Soup



  • 1.

    Bring the stock to the boil in a large saucepan.

  • 2.

    Add the chillies, galangal, lemongrass, lime leaves, tomatoes and roast chilli paste and stir well to combine.

  • 3.

    Add the palm sugar and fish sauce and allow to simmer for a minute.

  • 4.

    Add the sliced eschallots and check the balance. It should be a little on the saltier and sweeter side at this point as the heat is yet to develop.

  • 5.

    Add the lime juice, remove from the heat and taste again. If the balance in flavours is correct, then add the prawns and straw mushrooms.

  • To serve:

  • 1.

    Divide the noodles amongst serving bowls and pour the soup over.

  • 2.

    Finish with coriander.
