  • In a 10-inch nonstick skillet heat 1 tsp. oil over medium. Add eggs. Cook, without stirring, 1 minute or until bottom is set. Turn with spatula and cook 30 to 60 seconds more. Cut into thin, bite-size strips. Stir into soup.

  • In a small bowl combine peanuts, cilantro, and lime zest. Ladle soup into bowls and top with peanut mixture. Serve with lime wedges.

*Tip

Fish sauce is widely available. The sticky, sour tropical fruit tamarind is often sold as a paste or concentrate in Asian markets; or if you can't find it, substitute 1 Tbsp. rice vinegar or lime juice mixed with 1 tsp. packed brown sugar.
