Thaï soup with prawns, coconut & curry

22 décembre 2015 2 Comments

I took some inspiration from the “Tom Kha Gai” Thai soup to make this thaï soup with prawns, coconut and curry recipe – I love the association of coconut milk with spices -, by replacing/adding a few ingredients. I also opted for prawns instead of chicken – it was apparently a mistake for my bank account, as the 10 prawns costed me one kidneybut trust me, this only make them even more tasty while eating them .
In the end, this thaï soup with prawns, coconut & curry is quite light and fresh – even though quite spicy. Therefore, it might be quite appreciated for the next days full of heavy meals and too much alcoholized evenings… – oh hey you hangover cure!

If you’re still looking for some inspiration for your Christmas/New year’s menus, here are a few of my recipes from the previous years that you could try out:

> Smoked duck filet tatin tart with figs, brie cheese, honey & Szechuan pepper (FR)
> Salmon tartare with gorgonzola & mint
> Christmas gingerbreads & Zimtsterns
> White chocolate & coconut truffles
> Mascarpone & chestnut cream yule log, with a chocolate-mint ganache (FR)

      Don’t worry the problem happens often ;) It’s because lnthemoodforfood starts with a l instead of a i on my instagram account (all the inthemoodforfood accounts were already taken when I changed my name)
