Wash, peel and de-vein prawns or shrimp, remove the heads but keep the tails intact.
Bring water or stock to boil in a sauce pan over medium heat then add lemongrass, galangal and lime leaves. Cook until fragrant.
Add all the seafood except the shrimp or prawns (DO NOT STIR) and wait until they change color then add the shrimp or prawns. Cook a few more minutes then add the sweet basil leaves, swirl gently and turn off heat.
In a serving bowl, (Do this while waiting for the sauce pan to boil) combine lime juice, chilies and fish sauce.
Add the ingredients from the sauce pan when done to the serving bowl. Mix bottom to top and top with the dried red chilies and sprig of sweet basil.
DO NOT stir once you added the seafood as it will make the soup smell of fish.
