      Delicious soup but nowhere in the recipe does it say what to do with the lime juice or the remainder of the fish sauce.
      I didn't strain out the solids, I felt they added in more to the soup - I also topped with fresh cilantro.
      A very easy and good recipe!

      Very tasty and close to authentic as possible for a home cook. (Just missing a bit of chili oil for more heat). Like the last commentator, I didn't strain out the solids (my family knows not to eat the lemon grass :). I added all the lime juice at once and I CUT THE FISH SAUCE TO TWO TEASPOONS...Three Tablespoons is extreme. As far as additions, I added a can of straw mushrooms, 1/2 cup chopped Thai basil, 3 tbsp light soy sauce and sweet chili sauce in place of the sugar. By all accounts a great recipe to start with and make your own.
