Indonesian Spicy Prawn Soup
A light bouillon with just a little spice raises this soup from the mundane.
The recipe can be used for crab as well, or for something a little different use
both crab and prawn, but halve the quantity of the two. The crab takes a little
longer to cook than the prawn so add the crab to the bouillon for two minutes
In four pre-warmed bowls, divide the coriander,
tomatoes and prawns.
Bring the stock to the boil and then simmer.
Mix the garlic, sugar, lemon juice and chilli paste in a small pot and stir
until the sugar has all dissolved. Now stir this mixture into the boiling stock
and then pour immediately into the four bowls and serve.
This will produce a spicy prawn soup.
