Spicy Thai Watermelon Soup


  • 1 small watermelon (3 pounds)
  • 2 ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • Salt and pepper, 1/4 teaspoon of each
  • 1 Serrano chili, minced and seeded
  • Dash or two fish sauce ice cubes
  • 1 cup grilled catfish, crumbled
  • Cilantro (garnish)


Peel 1 small watermelon and cut the flesh into large chunks. Put them in a food processor along with 2 ripe tomatoes, garlic clove, lime juice, salt and pepper, hot chili pepper and fish sauce.

Pulse the mixture, adding a few ice cubes, one at a time, if necessary to get the machine going. Chill in the refrigerator.

After pouring the soup into bowls, top with a small mound of grilled catfish and sprinkle with black pepper. Garnish with fresh cilantro.
