    I used all shrimp,and added tofu - no chicken. It was a little bland for me - didn't have chili paste so used a little tabasco sauce to give it a kick, powdered ginger, a little corriander and miso. Also scallions... YUM - 2/19/11

    Very Good
    My family loved it! They want **of course** potatoes in it. LOL But I thought it was great as is. Wish I knew how much broth was intended... - 6/10/10
