great recipe. i used vegetable broth with pho noodles and it is delicious. will probably try less broth next time.
This soup bursts with flavour and is so easy to throw together. I had to make some substitutions but it worked out just fine. I used 2 tsp of minced ginger (jar), 1 tsp lemon grass herb paste, 1 tsp lime zest and for the lime juice I used 5 Tbsp in total. Used regular mushrooms and a mix of sliced leeks and green onions instead of scallions. I ended up using a package that was a mix of small shrimp and prawns and we loved the combination in this soup. The joys of living up north when finding the right ingrediants can be hit & miss. Thank you for sharing this recipe - we'll be enjoying this a lot on rainy days and cold snowy ones too.
This was very yummy! The scallops were to die for, and the soup itself was very tasty. I used galangal instead of ginger. The only ingredient I couldn't find was the lime leaves. I would probably use a little less lime juice next time - my limes were big and gave me quite a bit of juice, so I should have added it gradually. Thanks for a great one!
