Fragrant Thai Lemongrass Soup with Fish ( 美味泰式香茅鱼汤 )

fragrant thai lemongrass soup with fish recipe
Lemongrass ( 香茅 ) is certainly one of my favourite herbs due to its scent and the many medicinal benefits. I burn lemongrass essential oil for relaxation, I use lemongrass oil for my massage, and I also like adding the herb to make Lemongrass Tea and soups like this Fragrant Thai Lemongrass Soup with Fish ( 美味泰式香茅鱼汤 ).

sour thai lemongrass fish soup with oyster mushrooms
This is a relatively easy recipe where you will get nice tender fish fillet with a sourish tang. Simply adjust the dish according to your taste and the seafood you have on hand. The recipe is also great for those who can't take the spicy Tom Yum Soup, so this dish is a wonderful alternative. Come, let’s try cooking this refreshing soup!

  1. what a great soup recipe! I'd love to try it.

  2. The soup looks so delicious with the oyster mushrooms. Must use good fish fillet and not those frozen dory fish fillets or else the soup will not taste good. What type of fish fillet do you use?

    1. You can use any fish fillet. Sometimes I use Halibut, Red Snapper, or even Toman Fish. I'm using Dory in this recipe & it tastes just as good. The sourish zest will get rid of any fishy taste, so it's ok to use dory here. xoxo

  3. Great post dear!

  4. That's a very delicious soup, Shirley! I would love a big bowl of it :)

  5. We've had a chilly autumn, so this flavorful soup would make a delicious, comforting meal!

  6. This soup looks so delicious and comforting Shirley!

  7. This sounds a perfect. delicious atumnal dish! :)

  8. Never had lemongrass soup with fish in it. We went to a Thai restaurant once and the waitress was shocked that my daughter ate the lemongrass soup at 8 month old.

    1. I guess you must be referring to the spicy Tom Yum soup. I’m surprised too if it’s spicy especially for a Caucasian of such young age. Bet you had a great feast there! xoxo

  9. Look like something similar to Tomyum . I bet it's very delicious too

  10. I rarely eat fish soup and it looks great!

  11. I could imagine the taste, how many bowls I can take. Super love your fish soup, Shirley!

  12. Really a fan of Asian receipes.


A lovely note makes a beautiful day!
