    LifeIsGood's Note:

    This gem comes from the Food Network Kitchens. It's simple, very quick to prepare and has the authentic flavors of Thai cooking. I hope you enjoy this simple, flavorful soup! *For the lemongrass stalk: Remove the tough outer layers of the lemongrass stalk (usually 2 or 3 pieces) ; cut off the root end; place your knife flat against the root end and trim stalk; slice the stalk starting at the bottom and moving up until it becomes too tough and woody.*

      We enjoyed this soup for an easy after work meal and just served a salad with it. I didn't have lemongrass on hand, but did have lemongrass powder. I used 1 tsp of it and let it steep in a little of the hot broth before adding it to the pan. I think the actual lemongrass would have given it better flavor, but it was good just the same. Made for ZWT6.

      This was a wonderful soup! I loved the balance of hot and sour. I'd like to try making it with lime juice next time instead of lemon- usually what I combine when I use fish sauce. The sriracha added a nice bite in the back of the throat; not too hot, but a really nice compliment to the other flavors going on in here. This is a great way to use up a bit of leftover rice, and would also be great with chicken if you don't have shrimp on hand- heck, it'd be great even without meat added at all... Made for ZWT9
