There are a pair of flavor mixtures that render me helpless and insatiable, and the aggregate of the prosperous sweetness of coconut milk, salty brine of fish sauce, and pucker of lime juice is arguably important among them. Mushrooms and a transient caramelization of the coconut milk lends depth to the broth, while spicy chiles add a uninteresting, gratifying burn to every chunk. (I occurred to purchase at a market where I might presumably perchance well additionally compile up shrimp handfuls of a unfold of mushrooms, retaining the price tag nicely within budget, but any one of your licensed mushrooms would work upright kindly here, too.) The following dish is terribly quick to provide and even better than your licensed Thai takeout. —Caroline Wright
