1 1/2 tablespoons cooking oil
3 shallots, cut into thin slices
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, chopped
5 jalapeño pepper, seeds and ribs removed, peppers cut into thin slices
1 quart canned low sodium chicken broth
2 cups water
grated lemon zest, of 2 lemons
grated lime zest, of 3 limes
1/2 pound mushrooms, quartered
5 tablespoons lime juice, (from about 3 limes)
1/4 cup Asian fish sauce, (nam pla or nuoc mam, available at Asian markets and many supermarkets)
2 pounds swordfish steaks, skinned, cut into approximately 2-by-1-inch pieces
2 tomatoes, cut into large dice (optional)
1/3 cup cilantro leaves, (optional)

In a large pot, heat the oil over moderately low heat. Add the shallots, ginger, and jalapenos; cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes. Add the broth and water; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in the zests and mushrooms; simmer 5 minutes longer.

Add the lime juice, fish sauce, and swordfish to the soup. Cook until the fish is just done, about 2 minutes. Serve sprinkled with the tomatoes and cilantro, if using.

Wine Recommendation: The strong flavors here suggest a light white without too much taste of its own. A pinot grigio from Italy will do fine - unless you increase the heat with more jalapenos. Then serve a cold beer.

Groundnut Stew

Peanut butter and okra flavor and thicken this tasty African stew. You can substitute green beans for the okra, if you like; the consistency of the sauce won’t be quite the same, but it will still be thick enough to cling to the chicken.

Tortilla Soup

From south of the border comes this spicy and hearty soup ladled over crisp tortilla strips and grated cheddar. The soup is chunky with chicken and avocado, but it’s the tortillas that give it a slight thickness and a special flavor.
