Adding nampla (fish sauce) and sugar improves this soup greatly. About a tablespoon of each. There's a much better recipe entitled "Coconut Curry Chicken Soup" that I would highly recommend over this one. You could easily substitute shrimp for the chicken.

The soup was really good. Next time I will sauté the mushrooms and shrimp with some butter, garlic and onions then add it to the soup. Quick and easy.
