The perfect soup (even if you aren’t a fan of soups !) It is zesty, spicy and full of those Thai flavours. My favourite quick meal to make on a weekday when I feel like mixing it up.

Inspired by mum who got the recipe from a good friend of hers.

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 1 clove of garlic chopped
  • Red or yellow pepper sliced

  • 1 packet of bean sprouts
  • 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon of fish sauce (optional)

  1. Heat up a little oil in a saucepan on a medium heat then add the garlic, ginger, lemon grass and curry paste and cook for a minute.
  2. Next add the chicken stock whilst stirring and let it combine for a few minutes. Taste and see if fish sauce is needed,
  3. Add the coconut milk, peppers, salmon and prawns.
