Citrus Blend Hot and Sour Shrimp Soup

There are so many ways to use our Citrus Blend within your cooking, but we really enjoy this soup recipe. You can use as little or as much of the Citrus Blend salt to suit your taste and you won’t be disappointed.



4 cups of chicken broth

3 tbsp. lemon juice

2 kaffir lime leaves finely chopped

1 tbsp of finely chopped lemongrass

3 tbsp. fish sauce

2 tsp. hot chilli sauce, or a hot cayenne pepper sliced up to taste (we dehydrate our cayenne peppers, and put a full pepper chopped up finely into this recipe)

½ tsp. sugar

Handful of vermicelli noodles (optional)

10 straw mushrooms (see photo below)

12 raw shrimp, peeled and heads & tails removed

2 chopped green onions

Small handful of parsley or cilantro to taste

Citrus Blend salt to taste


Bring the stock to a boil, adding the lime juice, lime leaves, lemongrass, fish sauce, chilli sauce or cayenne pepper, and sugar. Simmer for 3 minutes before adding the noodles (if using), mushrooms and shrimp. Cook for 2 – 3 minutes, or until the noodles have softened. Add Citrus Blend salt to taste. Enjoy!
