Wow! Very tasty! I loved the texture as well. I used sliced scallions in place of shallots, but that's all I changed. The fish sauce and dry sherry were lovely flavors for this soup. The chopped cilantro garnish is a must, IMO. Don't skip it. Thanx for an easy, yummy new soup recipe!

My expectation was a version of the velvet corn soup at a Chinese restaurant. This is much thinner, more like broth based egg drop soup. Thickness aside, the soup is delicious! It was super easy, uses items regularly in my pantry, and super quick to make. All of the flavors meld together to create a bowl of tasty soup. I used fish sauce and liked it with the sherry. Nothing was overpowering. I now have this in my quick lunches cookbook & will be making it again. Made for the ZWT6~ Asia. Thanks Syd! :-)
