Asian inspired soup that is easy and delicious. It's a meal on it's own and perfect for chilly days. My husband, who doesn't like Chinese food, loves this spicy soup at the start of a dinner. Leftovers freeze well.

Okay, I very rarely review recipes, but I had to on this one. My non-english speaking Vietnamese girlfriends mom gave me a thumbs up for this dish. I did of course make changes: Used 8 cups of shrimp stock(4 shrimp boullion cubes in 8 cups of water), 3-10 oz cans of straw mushrooms drained, 1-8 oz can of sliced Bamboo Shoots drained, 1 brick of firm Tofu sliced into 3/4 inch cubes, 3 Roma tomatoes seeded and chopped into 1 inch pieces, Fish sauce to taste about 6 Tbls, 1 Tbls White pepper and 2 pounds of frozen Cocktail Shrimp . Served with Lime wedges, Cilantro, blanched Bean Sprouts, Hot Chili oil, Pho noodles and Rice prestaged on the dinner table so individuals could adjust hot and sour to their own taste, and choose to eat plain or with noodles or rice. Hope this helps. Stu

Just what I needed to use up some limes. Easy preparation, quick and delicious meal. I used large shrimp--made the shrimp broth with the shells, then proceeded with the recipe.
