Absolutely delicious! I added coriander which worked really well, and maybe next time I will replace the noodles with rice as it seems like the kind of dish that could get away with it. But overall a great soup & my Wife (a BIG fan of Thai food) gave it a huge thumbs up!

Absolutely gorgeous, all the family loved it, may try it with some chicken as teenage son is not always keen on prawns.

Tried this last night - simply amazing! The taste was great, very easy to make. Even my husband is raving about it. Only thing was the liquid soaked up quickly - so I added more fish stock. Also added chilli and ginger for extra 'kick'. Will definately be making it again - and again. Can't wait to share it with my sister.
