Food Porn (1)


Not so much shark fin soup as shark tail soup — a dish which occurred to us after our regular Monday tiburón delivery left us with a few off-cuts from the narrower end of the fish.

We started off by creating a vegetable broth with some carrots, onions, red peppers, French beans, leeks, celery, star anis and coriander.

Once these were tender we added some Thai green curry mix and half a glass of coconut milk.

After this had simmered for a while, we added our shark meat and shortly after that a couple of generous tablespoons of Thai fish sauce plus a few squirts of lime juice.

Very much
de último in went some chow mein noodles and then some fresh mint was sprinkled over the soup as it was served.

Looks like this is going to be a regular feature now...

That looks and sounds ridiculously good...so you can easily find fish sauce in Guatemala? I can't live without it.

Never tried. It's one of those things I tend to bring over with me.
