Method
  1. In a pan add the stock, soy sauce, white pepper, sugar and cucumber and bring to the boil. Cook gently for a few minutes to soften the cucumber.
  2. Next add the shrimp and continue to cook until they are cooked throughout.
  3. Spin the mixture and crack two eggs into the soup causing them to scramble as they enter the moving soup.
  4. At the same time add the remaining eggs to a pan of simmering water and soft boil for five minutes, then remove and peel the shell.
  5. Rip the egg in half and add to the soup along with a handful of fresh Thai basil and crispy garlic and serve. Adjust seasoning if needed to suit your own taste.
