Thai Corn and Crab Soup
(Kaeng Poo Kab Kao Phod)
Practically a fast food, this is a subtle and satisfying soup--appetite stimulating as a first course and nicely slaking and contrapuntal in a traditional Thai meal, where all the dishes are served together and at once. Serve hot to 4 people.
Heat the oil in a large saucepan over high heat, add garlic and shallots, and fry until fragrant. Pour in chicken stock, fish sauce, crab (or other seafood), and creamed corn. Stir to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and let cook for a minute or two.
Meantime, beat the egg with the salt, then drip into the soup, covering the surface--leave for a bit, then gently stir, forming ribbons of egg in the soup liquid. Season to taste with salt and fish sauce. Stir in white pepper. Then ladle into a bowls and top with a design of whole cilantro leaves.
