  • Shrimp ball soup (Xia wan tang)

      Excellent. Added 1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce recommended in a recipe by Barbara Kafka in soup of life. I used Mother’s Korea’s chile garlic sauce. Added carrots cut with peeler and small head of bok Choi. I added the stems of the bok Choi after adding the shrimp balls and added the carrots and bok Choi leaves at the end along with some additional scallions at the end.
