Spicy Thai seafood soup with lemon sorghum

From this hot soup smells like real Thailand – that noisy, sea, floral, dark-skinned and smiling paradise with spicy aromas, in which we love to go to rest – well, and eat, of course.

INGREDIENTS
300 g of various peeled seafood (scallops, squid fillet, mussels)
300 g large shrimps or langoustines in shells
1 liter of strong chicken or spicy vegetable stock
a handful of “straw” mushrooms (volvarilla), or shiitake, or honey mushrooms
1-3 small hot red chili peppers
2 lime juice
3-4 green onion feathers
medium bunch of very fresh cilantro
10 kaffir lime leaves
3-4 stems of lemon sorghum
3 tbsp. l thai fish sauce us pla

STEP-BY-STEP COOKING RECIPE
Step 1
Peel the shrimp or langoustines, save the shells. In shrimp or langoustines, remove the black intestinal vein by making a shallow longitudinal incision in the back.
Step 2
Cut the hard tops of lemon sorghum, leaving no more than 15 cm. Crush the stalk with the flat side of a heavy knife or rolling pin. Or simply tap the stem with a hammer to beat meat.
Step 3
Rinse the shells, put in a pan, fill with broth. Add lemon sorghum and lime leaves, bring to a boil over low heat, reduce heat to minimum, cook for 10 minutes. Strain the broth, return to the pan.
Step 4
For mushrooms, remove the hard legs, “straw” mushrooms cut in half, cut the shiitake into slices. Cut the green onion into small pieces, remove the stems from the cilantro. Remove the seeds and white partitions from the chili, cut the flesh into rings (leave the seeds and white partitions if you like very sharp ones).
Step 5
Bring the broth to a boil, put the mushrooms and shrimp or langoustines, cook over low heat until the shrimps turn pink, 1-3 minutes. Put the rest of the seafood, cook another 2 minutes. Add chives and chili; season with lime juice and fish sauce, warm and serve with cilantro leaves.
BTW
It’s not easy to find fresh Kaffir lime leaves here. But dried, they are sold in the same place where the rest of the “tricky” spices – in eastern markets and in shops of Indian spices. If you could not find any, replace the leaves with the zest of those 2 limes from which you squeezed the juice. Put half of the zest in the form of wide stripes together with shells, the other half – crushed – at the very end, along with lime juice and other ingredients.

This salad is good to cook in the cold season, despite its "hot" Thai origin. A sharp gas station with a bright character will give it the proper taste, which…
