Now, let me start this by saying the soup was delish, for sure! But, I wanted fish balls, not broken up pieces of salmon. Lesson learned, puree the fish in the food processor. I suppose it would need to be sort of mousse like, so I might try some whipped egg whites folded in. Hmmm, maybe that will be tomorrow's mission: make fish balls that stay together.
So the rest of the recipe was basic, and not really a recipe. Here are the details anyway.
1 can coconut milk
2 tbsp Thai green curry paste (yes pre-made)
2 tsp fish sauce
squirt of srirachi
1 box vegetable broth (would normally use chicken, but I had it left over)
Simmer coconut milk and add curry paste, simmer for 5 minutes. Add broth, squirt srirachi to taste and fish sauce to taste (it can be salty so add it slowly!)
What I tried to do to make salmon balls.
1 can salmon
1 tsp garlic chili paste
1 tbsp coconut flour
cilantro leaves (I used dried, but fresh would be better)
Formed into balls and gently placed in broth at slow boil, let them boil for 8 minutes. They broke apart in the broth. So there is the fail. But, as I said still very tasty. I suppose that is the life when you are learning to cook without things like regular white flour.
So there you have it, Fail Fish Soup....in all its delicious glory!
