Recipe For Chilli Prawn Soup

If you can take the heat then this soup is perfect – I however am not into hot and so found this recipe to be only chilli. It lacked the depth of flavour I would normally have in my own recipes but every now and then, one has to follow someone else’s. This recipe was taken from the August 2007 IDEAS magazine (p120). It is my submission to this week’s challenge.

  2. I sure looks pretty enough.
    I’m thinking of doing another contribution to this challenge, have some calamari nuggets; but I don’t want to do my same old Thai style thing, so I’m hunting around for ideas.
