From newest book. Haven't tried. This tangy, spicy soup is made with classic Thai ingredients that are easy to find. Look for both chili-garlic sauce and Asian fish sauce in the specialty food section of most large supermarkets. If you have leftovers, simply whisk when reheating.

  1. In a large saucepan, combine broth, lemon juice, scallion whites, ginger, and pepper. Bring to a gentle simmer over medium high heat; cover and reduce heat to medium low, and simmer gently for 20 minutes.
  2. Stir in coconut milk (it will appear to curdle at first), then add shrimp, tomatoes ang their juices, chili garlic sauce, and fish sauce. Return to a simmer and cook until shrimp are opaque and cooked through, about 3 minutes.
  3. Remove pan from the heat, divide into 4 bowls, and serve.
