Ginseng Prawn Herbal Soup

“Ginseng Prawn Herbal Soup tasty and healthy”

Ginseng shrimp herbal soup, or we usually called it, Ginseng prawn herbal soup, is not an usual dish. Diners will be more familiar with Ginseng chicken soup and/ or Drunken prawns, but not so the prawns in Ginseng soup though.. Yes, I guessed so. However, it turned out great. Resembling Drunken Prawns, but this has milder flavour, with more soup in the dish. Great taste, great dish great nutritioned soup!

Easy to cook. You may even boil the soup in slow cooker in the morning, for long hours. Then, simply add in prawns to simmer for 5 minutes, when about to serve as dinner.
