Steamed mussels served with coconut milk soup infused with lemongrass, red curry paste and ginger—rich and vibrant.
1. In a wok or large pot, turn heat to medium. When wok is hot but not smoking, add 2 tablespoons curry paste and the lemongrass. Fry for 30 seconds to release the flavors. Add the clam juice, white wine, fish sauce, sugar, coconut milk and ginger. Simmer for 3 minutes. Add more curry paste for a spicier broth.
2. To seam the mussels: Turn the heat to high and add the mussels. Cover with a tight fitting lid. Steam on high for 4-5 minutes. Open lid, stir mussels to move them around, and cook for another 30 seconds. Remove mussels and sprinkle with scallions and chili. Discard mussels that have not opened.
3. For the soup, bring liquid mixture to a boil. Add shrimp and shiitake mushrooms. Bring to a boil again and reduce heat, cooking until shrimp is cooked through. Add sliced bok choy and remove from heat. Ladle a handful of bean thread noodles into a soup bowl, top with soup and sprinkle with scallions, cilantro and sriracha.
Perfect rainy day soup and quick enough for mid-week supper! Great as a first course or as an entree with a nice spring mix salad and some wonderful crusty bread. And don’t forget about the rest of the bottle of white wine.
Collards, black-eyed peas and smoky bacon make this delicious take on Hopping John soup.
Loaded with light and fresh flavors, Chicken Pho is a fun twist on the same-old-same-old bowl of chicken noodle soup. The broth is best made ahead of time, in either a slow cooker, or on the stove top. Then allow it to cool completely and skim off any congealed fat. The poached chicken and rice noodles can also be made ahead for time saving purposes.
