Recipe Directions

Soak the saffron in olive oil and salt. Set aside.
Blend all the other ingredients. Prepare a nut bag or cheese cloth to strain the soup. Pour the soup into the nut bag or cheese cloth then squeeze liquid.
You can put the soup in the dehydrator to warm before service.
Serve with the saffron oil made earlier. Strain the saffron oil and top the soup. You can add cilantro and mung bean sprouts, too! Enjoy!

Cheflandria's Thoughts

I finally made it! All sorts of ingredients run in my mind for this soup and finally got a chance to try it.
One of my favorite comfort food, “Canh Chua”. The original soup is made with fish or shrimp stock along with the fish or shrimp itself. The soup I made have those flavor by just using some oil, saffron and salt. It gives it a shrimp oily flavor. It’s delicious!

if you have a zester, just run it through it like a grater. or if you have a grater with smaller holes, grate it into fine zest...hope that helps and no questions are stupid :-)

This may be a stupid question, but how do you zest lemongrass? It's like trying to peel a blade of grass or maybe I just don't have the culinary skill. Can you cut it up?

if you are not a spicy person, don't add the chili flakes.
