Hot pot, a communal Asian cooking style, is similar to fondue in that the broth is poured into a hot pot and all the ingredients (shrimp, chicken, meats, tofu or vegetables) are arranged on a platter for individual cooking. Get your family and friends involved; present this soup in a hot pot and let them add the shrimp themselves.

Thai Hot and Sour Hot Pot Recipe at
Arrange shrimp on platter. Cover and refrigerate.

Heat oil in heavy large stockpot over medium-high heat. Add curry paste and stir 1 minute. Add chicken broth, lemon grass, kaffir lime leaves and galangal. Bring to boil and simmer 10 minutes. Strain; return cooking liquid to pot. Add tomatoes, mushrooms, 1/4 cup fish sauce and sugar. Bring to boil. Add cilantro and 1/3 cup lime juice. Season broth to taste with additional fish sauce and lime juice. Transfer half of broth to fondue pot. Keep remaining broth covered and warm over low heat, adding more to fondue pot as needed.

Set fondue pot over fondue burner; adjust heat so broth simmers. Allow guests to simmer shrimp in broth until cooked through, about 1 minute.

NOTE: Broth can also be transferred to hot pot or wok.
