THAI SSHRIMP NOODLE SOUP

Bangkok style



SERVES 4

Ingredients

  • 8 cups water or Fish/Shrimp broth
  • 3 green onions, minced
  • 2 carrots, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce or soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Thai hot chili sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2.5 tablespoons peeled and very thinly slivered fresh ginger
  • 3 teaspoon chopped fresh basil
  • 4 packages oriental- or chicken-flavor ramen noodles, slightly broken
  • 8 ounces medium-size shrimp, peeled & deveined
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped fresh spinach
  • 1.5 cup sliced mushrooms
  • Juice and grated zest from 1 lime

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring water to a boil in a soup pot. Add green onions, carrots, fish sauce, chili sauce, garlic, ginger, and basil to pot. Add 2 ramen noodle seasoning packets (if you add all 4 packets, the soup will probably be too salty). Boil 5 minutes. 

Step 2

Add shrimp, spinach, mushrooms, and ramen noodles. Cook 5 more minutes. Add lime juice and zest. Stir well and serve.

WONDERFUL BRUNCH TREAT!
