Once you track down the somewhat exotic ingredients for this soup-they keep in the freezer for months-it can be made in minutes. Best of all, it doesn’t require broth, although shrimp broth would give it a wonderful flavor.

preparation

1.  In a pot, combine about 6 cups water, the chiles, garlic, shallots, galangal, lime leaves, and lemongrass, bring to a simmer, and simmer gently for 12 minutes.

2.  Add the shrimp and simmer for 1 minute. Add the cilantro, fish sauce, and lime juice and simmer for 1 minute, or until the shrimp are cooked. Season with pepper. Taste for salt and add more fish sauce—it is very salty and will contribute flavor—until the salt level is right.
