Directions

Step 1

In a large pot over medium high heat add oil. Add galangal, lemongrass, lime leaves, ginger, chilies, garlic, chopped onion, celery, and carrots. Sweat for 10 – 15 minutes or until you breath in the aromatics. The chili can be caught at the back of your throat leaving a little burning sensation. Pour cold water over and add the cilantro & basil stems, palm sugar, fish sauce and lime juice. Bring to a boil, remove from heat, and strain.

Step 2

Finish soup by reheating it over medium heat. Add seafood, and coconut milk (shake can well to emulsify, this will ensure it does not split). Do not allow soup to boil. Season with salt and a little more lime juice. Add garnish to bowl and pour soup over. Drizzle cilantro oil around and serve immediately.
