Wash, peel and de-vein shrimp or prawns, remove the heads but keep the tails intact. In a sauce pan, boil the water or stock over medium heat. Add lemongrass, mushrooms, galangal, lime leaves and cook a few minutes until fragrant. Then add prawn and simmer until they have just changed color, turn off heat.
