If you’re feeling the love for Thai food on a cold, winter’s day, this dish will surely bring on the body heat! This comforting bowl of yum will fulfill your soup and seafood craving. I like to see what’s calling my name at the seafood market for this dish. Really, you can add any type of fresh seafood! This dish tastes just as good with a nice, sturdy white fish, fresh mussels, and calamari. And don’t forget the side of rice!
