"This soup is packed with great flavors. Not sure who Thu is but this soup was made by Chef Paul Prudhomme's friends when he would visit their home in Hawaii."

Step 1

Combine the seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl.

Step 2

Melt butter in a 4-quart pot over high heat. As soon as the butter begins to sizzle, add the mushrooms, lemon grass, garlic, serranos, and the seasoning mix. Cook stirring frequently, and when the mixture begins to stick, about 2 minutes, add the lemon juice, lime juice, and Thu's Fish Sauce.

Step 3

Cook for 5 minutes over high heat until the liquid barely covers the bottom of the pan and is thick.

Step 4

Add the chicken stock, cover, and bring to a full boil. Add the shrimp and parsley, return to a full, rolling boil, remove from the heat and serve immediately.
