Chilli Prawn Soup

If you can take the heat then this Chilli Prawn 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.

I can really cry when I come back to my recipes for editing purposes and see the photographs I took. But knowing that this aspect of my blogging has improved is always a positive for me. I know for a fact that my recipes from this time are good. And sometimes I wish I had the time to make them again. Not only because I would have something better to show you. But because most of them are worth a second go. If not a third or fourth. This one I would make with less chilli heat. My palate is far too sensitive for me to enjoy really hot food. I prefer tasty to hot.

  1. 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.

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
