Hot And Sour Shrimp Soup Recipe

Ingredients :
2 lemongrass stalks
6 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 or 2 serrano chiles, halved lengthwise
1 shallot, sliced
2 slices (1/4 in. thick) fresh ginger, crushed
1 small zucchini, cut into 1/2-in. dice
4 button mushrooms, quartered
1 red jalapeño chile, thinly sliced
3/4 pound small (about 50 per lb.) raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 tablespoon Vietnamese or Thai fish sauce
About 1 tbsp. white vinegar
1/4 cup cilantro leaves
2 tablespoons fresh dill, coarsely chopped

Step 1
Trim green tips from lemongrass and peel off tough outer layer from each. Mash stalks with a meat mallet or rolling pin, then tie each stalk in a knot. Put in a small pot, add chicken broth, serrano chile, shallot, and ginger, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer 10 minutes.
Step 2
Remove lemongrass, serrano chile, and ginger from pot and discard. Add zucchini, mushrooms, jalapeño chile, and shrimp. Turn off heat and let steep until shrimp is just cooked through, 2 minutes.
Step 3
Stir in fish sauce, 1 tbsp. vinegar, the cilantro, and dill. Add more vinegar to taste, if you like.
Step 4
Divide among 4 bowls and serve hot.
