1 stalk lemongrass, sliced
5 kaffir lime leaves stem removed and torn
½ cup straw mushrooms cut in half
1 cup pea eggplant (eggplant cubed into small pieces will do)

2 1/2 tbsp Thai fish sauce
2 ½ tbsp fresh lime juice
3 thin sliced fresh dried or matured galangal
3 red bird’s eye chilies
1 tbsp fresh chopped coriander (cilantro) leaves
Wash, peel and de-vein shrimp or prawns, remove the heads but keep the tails
intact. In a sauce pan, boil the water or stock over medium heat. Add lemongrass,
mushrooms, galangal, lime leaves and cook a few minutes until fragrant. Then
add prawn and simmer until they have just changed color, turn off heat.

ingredients from the sauce pan to the serving bowl and mix.
