A spicy rich soup that becomes an addiction! This recipe is a modification found on a can of "Thai Kitchen" brand coconut milk. Ingredients can be found in the Asian section of most super markets. Coconut milk can be found near other canned milk.

Fantastic. Restaurant quality. I have to believe an error was made for the person who reported seperation. I have made it for guests more than once to rave reviews! For our tastes, we as much as double the chili paste and half the fish sauce.
