Notes:

 

  • Most Thai recipes are written per person and when testing this recipe I discovered that the paste satchet is just exactly enough for one person, therefore if you are making this for a family of four you will need 4 satchets.
  • This is a really refreshing soup and I love the hot and sour aspects of it coupled with the crunchy prawns.
