Spicy Prawn Laksa

Red Thai seafood soup with lemongrass, basil and mint (Lorraine Pascale)

May 22, 2013

What you need:

  • 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 bunch of spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1 lemongrass stick, very finely sliced
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves (I found them with the herbs and spices in the supermarket)
  • 1 x 4cm piece of ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1-2 red chillies, finely sliced (remove seeds before slicing for less heat)
  • 100g of chestnut mushrooms, cut into chunks
  • 100g of Thai red curry paste
  • 200ml of fish stock
  • 1x400ml can of coconut milk, preferably not low fat
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce (or 1/2½ tsp of salt)
  • 1/2 to 1 tbsp of caster sugar
  • 100g green beans, topped and tailed
  • 200g raw, jumbo prawns
  • 300g sustainably-caught fish, such as salmon or pollack, cut into bite-sized chunks
  • Salt and pepper
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 bunch of basil, leaves only
  • 1 bunch of mint, leaves only

Put a little oil into a medium pan over a low heat. Add the garlic, spring onions, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, ginger, chillies and mushrooms and cook for three minutes until everything begins to soften.

Then add the red curry paste and cook for a couple of minutes and stir until it begins to release its aroma.

Tip in the fish stock and the coconut milk, along with the fish sauce and caster sugar and turn up the heat.

Let it bubble away for three to four minutes.

Add the green beans, prawns and fish and cook for about five minutes, or until the seafood is cooked through.

Season to taste with salt and pepper, then divide between four serving bowls.

Squeeze the juice of half a lime into each bowl, top with the herbs and serve. (Serves 4)
