Anything with coconut and lime just takes me right back to the tropics. I love this soup. It's actually a Thai recipe and is very easy and quick create. Plus, I usually have these ingredients on hand anyway, so it is also inexpensive. Enjoy.

What a quick and easy recipe!
I love anything with curry and a great soup. There are times when a recipe state it's a quick one and end up being one that twice the stated time.
One thing that I always do prior to preparing a new recipe is to read all the previous reviews. I followed quite a few suggestions by other reviewers. I increased the curry to 1 tablespoon, added 2 tablespoons of fish sauce, 1 tablespoon of garlic and 1/2 tablespoon of red pepper.
It was so good that my only regret was not making extra!
I will be making this recipe quite often!

Recipe was good but it felt like it was missing something, can't really figure out what it is though. Also, made it twice, second time we added another can of coconut milk which made it better, but it was still missing something.

Imade the soup with just one minor change; I used 1 1/2 cans of fat free reduced sodium chicken broth. My wife, who does not like curry dishes had two bowls. Need I say more?
