A healthy and light delicious soup. A great idea if you have a lot of lettuce and buy in bulk like us!
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Yield: 4 people
1 lb shrimp
4 stems green onion
4 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
Dash of pepper
1 Tbsp fish sauce
4 bunch lettuce
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 gal water
Cut lettuce into 1.5" inch pieces and set aside.
Peel the garlic cloves. Peel the shrimp skin (set the skins aside to cook later).
Mince the shrimp to a paste with a dash of salt & pepper. Also dice all the green onions and use a little bit for the shrimp paste.
In a pot on medium heat, add vegetable oil and cloves of garlic until the garlic is golden.
Add half gallon of water and the shrimp skins into the pot until boil; about 10 minutes. Then, scoop the shrimp skins out and toss out. This is to make the soup sweeter and tasty!
Then using a spoon, put your spoon into the shrimp paste and form like a meatball and drop into the boiling water and cook for 10 minutes until boiled. Add fish sauce, diced green onions, and lettuce pieces and cover for 5 minutes.
