Coconut Fish Stew With Basil and Lemon Grass

Ready in 40 minutes

Delicious Thai Soup

"Yummy! I followed the recipe exactly except I like a little heat so I added the jalapeno with seeds and ribs. Also, my lemon grass is under some snow, so I substituted a Tbsp of Penzey's dried lemon grass for the stalk. I can imagine it would have been even better with fresh - I can't wait to make it again in the spring. Thanks for the recipe!"

I added a little soy sauce. So good. Also, I used young coconut juice instead of coconut milk. I'm new to cooking so I'm not sure if there is a big difference, but I think the juice is a lot thinner and a bit healthier.
