      I think it's curious that the poster of this recipe describes it as Australian. To me, it seems it's influence is Thai. Anyway, I have made this following the recipe, which was very good as is, but I wound up altering it to suit my tastes the last couple times I made it. I must stress that the original recipe is delicious but I prefer more flavor. Heres what I have done if anyone's interested. I always use chicken broth instead of water. I also add 1 tablespoon of brown sugar (trust me on this) and a few squirts of fish sauce. At the end, I like to stir in a little torn fresh basil, which gives it a wonderful, bright flavor. Also, I have used chicken instead of shrimp, which is excellent as well.

      This was a delicious comforting food with a strong exotic touch!
      Really delicious, we all enjoced it very much.
      I just came home form holidays and I had prepare this using what I had at home (including ginger and limes) and substituting the carrots with one red bell pepper (witch I fried just after the ginger and garlic) and I topped all with chives.
      Thanks a lot for this fast and tasty dish!

      I made this soup and added fresh parsley, lemon grass,and cooked rice. After I cooked all including shrimp I blended all in blender. I'll use less red pepper flakes next time. Next time I want to try the fresh basil and fish sauce.
