4 Servings

  • 1/2 lb certified organic Target Marine sturgeon
  • 16 Prawns
  • 2 Tbsp Butter
  • 2 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 Tbsp Ginger minced
  • 1 stalk Lemongrass smashed and removed after simmering
  • 1/2 cup Onion thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup Celery (small dice)
  • 1/2 cup Fennel thinly sliced

  • 1 can (14 oz) Coconut Milk
  • 1 Red Thai Chili Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Cilantro rough chopped

Preheat soup pot over medium heat. Sauté the aromatics; the ginger, onion, garlic, celery, lemongrass, and fennel. Sauté for about 5 mins. Then add the peppers and sauté for another 3-4 mins.

Add the sherry to deglaze the pot. Add the stock, coconut milk, chili pepper, lime juice. Bring to a boil, and then simmer on medium low heat uncovered for 30 mins. Add the Target Marine sturgeon and prawns and continue simmering for another 10 mins.
