Interesting dish, luckytrim. Sweet and sour. I think I'll use daikon radish. The mushrooms are for garnish? You don't cook it, and incorporate mushroom flavor into the broth? Can I use most any kind?

Great pics, too!

Spot On, Spork.......... as you can see, I have a lot of mushrooms (not sliced, but bite-sized) ready, and I add them at the time I add the shrimp. The recipe dictates "mushrooms for garnish" but as you say, it seemed such a waste...... pretty much any 'shroom works, whatever you like......
I should mention; the first time I made this the smells that filled my kitchen made me think I was wasting my time; that I wasn't gonna like it at all.. Boy, was I wrong.

Here's a previous thread about radish soup ideas:

What is your favorite way to make radish soup?

I'll have to give this version a try when both radishes and spinach are in the garden in June. Thanks!
