Am amazing thai soup , bursting with flavour with every mouthful. It might seem rather compicated but it isn't really.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Shell prawns and reserve heads. Chop the squid into bite size pieces or strips.
  2. combine the prawn heads and stock, slowly bring to the boil, simmer uncovered for 30 minutes. Cool, strain the stock and throw away heads.
  3. Heat oil in pan, add onion, ginger, garlic, lemongrass and sauces, cook until the onion is soft.
  4. add the stock, seeds, juice, leaves,bring to the boil and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes, stir in coconut milk and sugar, simmer 5 more minutes.
  5. Just before serving add the seafood and simmer about 2 minutes until they are cooked. Cooking the squid longer will result in a rubbery squid.

We had to sub some of the seafood, but this was a great soup. We've had it about 4 times now.
