      Great and easy recipe! Couldn't find fresh clams here so I left that out and added extra shrimp. It was spicy but not overpowering. I'll make this again.

      We had a Korean friend who always brought the most delicious cuisine to church. One Sunday it was freezing cold and the people who had signed up to bring refreshments that Sunday never showed. But since our friend always brought something she made, we had Mae Un Tang in styrofoam cups! It was heavenly. I like it when I'm sick too. Glad I found it here! I'm going to have to make it soon!
