This recipe makes nice soup. I used shrimp, and scaled the recipe for fewer diners. I did seem to need a little more liquid for my scaled recipe, but made up for that with the seasonings. I used canned straw mushrooms, which I left whole. I also left the baby corn whole. After tasting the soup, I added some fish sauce, which I feel is an important ingredient. I did use lime zest and juice, but think a kaffir lime leaf or 2 would add a lot to this. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.
