Thai Fish Coconut Soup is made with succulent boneless fish pieces and fresh vegetables in a creamy and rich coconut curry broth. Lemongrass, cilantro roots and stems, galangal and ginger not only contribute to the overall flavor of the soup — they are also largely responsible for its tantalizing aroma. This hearty Thai fish coconut soup has so much flavor that is hard to believe it’s a healthy soup and is a delicious one pot meal.
