Yellow Shrimp Soup ( Gang Luang Gung )


A yellow curry soup from the south of Thailand featuring prawns or shrimp and bamboo as it's main ingredients. It is very typical of the southern provinces. In Thailand we use ready made curry pastes, which you can get from any Asian grocer.

2-3 Tablespoons Yellow Curry Paste
100 ml Tamarind Water
250 ml Water

1. Clean the shrimp, leave the head on, but remove the rest of the shell, cut down the back and remove the gut.
2. Put the yellow curry paste into a saucepan, add the water and bring to the boil.
3. When the water is boiling, add pickled bamboo, the shrimps, fish sauce, sugar and tamarind water, and boil for 2 minutes.
