How to make it

  • Bring to a simmer the water, chicken stock, fish sauce, lime leaves and lemon grass(bruised) . Allow it to simmer for at least 20 minutes.
  • In a pot large enough to accommodate the stock sweat the shallots, garlic, ginger and chillies until shallot is translucent - about 5 minutes. Don't let the garlic brown!
  • Strain the broth into the pot with the garlic and etc. Bring to a boil.
  • Ideally you want to cook the noodles and prawns so they finish at the same time. In my case the noodles were about 6 minutes. So I cooked the noodles for 4 minutes, turned it down to a simmer and added the prawns which take about 2 minutes.
  • When prawns and noodles are done take the soup off the heat. Stir in lime juice. Taste for salt, depending on your fish sauce you may need to add some.
  • Ladle soup into bowls garnish with a healthy amount of cilantro and a lime wedge.
