How to make it
- Combine the chicken broth, water, lemongrass, scallion, ginger root and jalapeno pepper in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer, simmer; covered, for 30 minutes. Shut off the heat and let sit for 10 minutes. Pour though a sieve into a container; return the broth to the pan. Add the coconut milk and curry paste (red if you want red curry, green if you want green curry); stir until the curry paste is dissolved. Taste, add more if you want it hotter, but LindySez, watch out, it'll sneak up on you. Stir in the spinach and basil.
- Meanwhile, heat the broiler to high. Rub the salmon with the sesame oil and place under the broiler. Cook, without turning, about 5 minutes, you want the center to be slightly underdone as it will continue to cook when the broth is pour over.
- In a large deep bowl, divide the soba noodles. Top with the salmon (remove the skin.) Ladle the soup over and serve with additional basil if desired.
