First, prepare the prawn stock by bringing a pot of 3 cups of water and bringing it to a boil. If you’re feeling creative, you can make your own prawn stock, but I decided to get the prawn stock powder from the Asian grocery store.

I added about 2 tablespoons of the powdered prawn stock to 3 cups of boiling water.

If you can’t find the very strange but fragrant root galangal, you can always use ginger instead. Grate about 1 tablespoon of galangal with a grater or a ricer.

Next, you’re going to want to prepare the shrimp. You can always opt-in to buying frozen shrimp, but there’s nothing more delicious than the umami flavor of fresh shrimp.

Peel and devein 5 fresh shrimps and set aside for later.

Let it boil for another 5 minutes, then add lime juice.
