Thai Coconut Shrimp Soup

The kids slurped up big bowls of this for lunch today. It got a thumbs up from Nolan.

3 cups chicken broth
1 can coconut milk
1 teaspoon red curry paste
1 tablespoon fish sauce
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, finely grated
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup snow peas, halved lengthwise
1 # raw shrimp, peeled
green onions
1 lime, juiced

Combine broth, milk, curry, fish sauce, ginger and salt. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer. Add green beans, cook 2 minutes. Add shrimp and cook until opaque, about 5 minutes. Stir in lime juice. Top with green onions and cilantro.
