  • Step 1/2

    • Low sodium chicken stock
    • 7 leaves kaffir lime leaves, torn into pieces
    • 7 slices lemongrass, approximately 1/8-inch thick
    • 8 slices thin slices fresh galangal
    • 28 g fresh button or oyster mushrooms,cut into bite-size
    • 2 tbsp Nam Prik Pao
    • ¼ Cup fish sauce, or to taste
    • 4 leaves red bird’s eye chilies, crushed

    In a medium saucepan, bring the broth to a very gentle boil over medium heat. Adjust the temperature so that the liquid is barely simmering. Add the lemongrass, galangal, and kaffir lime leaves to the broth; continue to monitor the temperature. Add the mushrooms and stir in the Nam Prik Pao. Add fish sauce, followed by crushed chilies.

  • Step 2/2

    • ¼ Cup fresh lime juice, or to taste
    • 500 g jumbo shrimp, peeled with the head and tail sec
    • Cup evaporated milk, whole milk, or half-n-half
    • ¼ cup lightly-packed cilantro leaves

    As the broth is gently simmering, lower the shrimp into it. Turn up the heat a bit to keep the broth at a steady simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until shrimp have firmed up slightly, about 1 minute. Add milk, cook until simmering, and remoce from heat. Season soup with lime juice and fish sauce to taste. Stir in cilantro leaves and serve.
