Laksa Prawn Soup : Malaysian Recipe

Asian Recipes

This hugely popular coconut-based noodle soup is prepared using the spicy laksa paste, made from lemongrass, garlic, chilli and almonds. The mild coconut offsets the kick of the laksa paste perfectly.

Ingredients:

To be blended:
2 roughly chopped cloves of garlic
2 red chillies
4 shallots, roughly chopped
1 stick lemongrass (discard outer layer)
3cm piece of ginger
50g ground almonds
1 tbsp fish sauce

Soup:
Whole raw prawns-remove the heads and shells but leave the tails on
200g noodles
3 tbsp blended paste (see above)
2 tbsp fish sauce
3 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp sugar
400ml coconut milk
Coriander (fresh)
1/4 cucumber, cut into strips


Methods:

Put the prawn shells and heads into a pan with 700ml water and leave to simmer for 30 mins to make a stock.

Strain the prawn stock and get rid of the solids. Heat the oil in a pan over a medium heat before frying the prawns for 2 minutes.

Add 3 tablespoons of laksa paste and fry for a further 2 minutes.

Pour in the coconut milk, lime juice, fish sauce, sugar and shellfish stock and allow to simmer gently.

Blanch the noodles in boiling water for a couple of minutes. Drain the noodles and pour over the prawn broth.

Serve with a garnish of cucumber and coriander.
