We’re insanely in love with this Hot & Sour Seafood Soup. I would have said this soup is a riot of flavor and texture. Its taste salty and tanginess on the edge. And a little bit heat from the Thai Chili just give an extra kick to the soup.
I had make this in so many occasion and this dish never fail. It is so easy to put together. And whenever I have a chance, I will cook for my family.
The original Hot & Sour Seafood Soup should contain pork, pork blood, bamboo shoot, lily bud etc.… While I felt this version of seafood is as good as the original one too and I think you should try it out.
So, here is the recipe hope you will enjoy as much as I do.
