Asian soup is one of Antje’s alltime favorites. I know, lobster is a bit pricy. Well, this was a good year for Maine lobster and prices are down a bit, but still, shrimps are cheaper and also do the job here. I especially like the combination of kohlrabi, coconut milk and chili. That alone is a side dish for me, i.e. with grilled fish or chicken
