This Thai soup is ideal for any low fat fish such as trout, catfish or snapper. The soup is slightly spicy but has a great lemon/lime over-tone to it.

  • 6 cups (1 1/2 litres) chicken or fish stock
  • 4 whole roasted shallots
  • 3 kaffir lime leaves, torn
  • 1 stalk lemongrass, cut into 3cm lengths
  • 300g fish, scaled, gutted and cut into steaks
  • 4 crispy fried dried red chillies
  • 1 shallot, sliced
  • 3 sprigs Thai coriander
  • 1-2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2-3 limes, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons tamarind juice
