Shrimp Rice Soup in Thai-Style "Home-Made" Version

Another recipe from mother-in-law in Thailand for shrimp rice soup = ultimate comfort food.
 Rice soup is different from congee.
You get to enjoy texture of rice as whole in the rice soup while you enjoy silky grounded texture of rice in congee.
Simple and comforting.  Either  you go to Thailand or Hell's kitchen to experience this heaven. 

Here is the original recipe from Thailand:
1.  Cook 1/2 cup jasmine rice in soup stock.  Bring it to boil.
2. Add 3 pieces of shrimps which were immaculately cleaned.  Remove shells and veins and chopped.
3. Add preserved salty Chinese veggies for 2 tbsps and 2 tbsps soy ssauce.
4. Once rice gets softened, add toppings such as chopped green onion, cilantro, crispy fried garlic...etc... basically whatever pleases you.

I was thinking about adding spicy cod fish eggs (mentaiko) to this soup.

What is your idea?

Have a nice day!!!
