Thai Coconut Shrimp Soup

ThriftyFun has been doing Soup of the Week posts which have been making me crave soups nonstop. I thought I'd add one of my favourite coconut shrimp soup recipes with you. This soup is sweet, spicy, savoury, and super velvety. I know you will fall in love with it! If you can't find some of the ingredients, read the segment below for substitutions.


1 lemon grass stalk: 1 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
1 Tbsp Thai curry paste: 1 tsp curry powder
2 Tbsp fish sauce: 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce + 1 Tbsp soy sauce

Remember that fish sauce is pretty potent, so you might want to add a little bit at a time until you reach your desired flavour.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: 6 servings



  1. Heat a bit of oil to a pot over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, chili paste, ginger, lemongrass, and curry paste.
  2. Cook until onions are soft, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add baby corn and carrots, reduce heat, and simmer for about 30 minutes.
  4. Pour in coconut cream, and then add the shrimp. Simmer until they are cooked through. It won't take long.
  5. Stir in fish sauce, sugar, and lime juice. Make adjustments to your taste.
  6. Cook a couple minutes, then serve in bowls. Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro.
