Soup Week: Cambodian Sour Fish Soup with Soba Noodles

By Pielove, member

February 28th, 2011

I could eat a lot of this soup-- it's light and brothy, with a great sour note from the tamarind, plus a satisfying meaty texture from the fish, then ginger and wonderful herbal garnishes to add aroma.  Even though not authentic, I added some soba noodles for additional interest and they were excellent.  The fish was left over from my daughter's favorite fish dish, the baked cod with parmesan breadcrumbs from Abby Dodge's Around the World cookbook.  I scraped off the topping and rinsed off the mustard, then just warmed it in the broth.  Perfect for a cold, but sunny day!

Pielove writes: It was delicious and unbelievable easy-- just simmer some lemongrass, tamarind, etc in water (I used broth), then throw in the fish to cook (or in my case, just warm up). Noodles, garnishes-- done in 15 minutes! Usually soup is such a project-- this was great. Posted: 9:08 pm on February 28th
