Ok,to clear up some confusion I had I about fresh coriander, and I figured others might to. The recipe call for fresh coriander which is really fresh cilantro. In many parts of the world cilantro is called coriander, here in the US coriander is the dried seed of the cilantro plant after it flowers. Since the recipe calls for a bunch of fresh coriander it means cilantro, not the dried round coriander seeds. They have TWO different and DISTINCT flavors. So if you use dried coriander seed instead of fresh cilantro your soup will have a different flavor. I haven't made this soup yet but I will. Hope this helps clear up some confusion. UPDATE: Made this soup increased the broth to 8 cups and doubled the rest of the ingredients, used 1 1/2 lbs. shrimp in place of the chicken. It is delicious! I will be making this again and again.
