We are back in Thailand. I just can’t seem to get enough of their food….LOL!! This soup is so delicious and especially on a day like today as here in NY we had a major snowstorm and there is over a foot of snow on the ground. It is also so easy to make. Most of the ingredients you will have on hand. The fish sauce can be found in the ethnic aisle of your supermarket.
5 cloves garlic, minced
3 shallots, minced
3 cups chicken broth
2 tablespoons Fish Sauce
1/2 pound shrimp, cooked*
1-14 oz can cream-style corn
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
* An equal amount of cubed chicken may be substituted for the shrimp in this recipe.
Sauté garlic and shallots until light brown.
Add chicken broth, Fish Sauce, shrimp, creamed corn and black pepper.
Bring to a boil.
While stirring, pour in beaten egg.
Boil for 3 minutes.
Serve garnished with cilantro.
