|Nigella's Hot & Sour Soup|
Place the water and tom yam cubes in large stockpot. Add lime zest, juice, lemongrass, fish sauce, chile flakes, and sugar. Bring to a boil. Add mushrooms and simmer for 2 minutes, then add the shrimp and scallions. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until shrimp are fully cooked and have turned pink. Sprinkle with a little cilantro and put more on the table for passing.
Serves 4-6 people
NOTES : Risa's notes:
** Nigella uses 2-3 red or green chiles. If you don't have fresh chile, use dried chile flakes. Use sparingly if you aren't thrilled with the heat or a lot if you are.
