Pour chicken broth into a large saucepan and turn heat to medium-high. Add Gourmet Garden Lemon Grass. Boil 5 to 6 minutes, or until fragrant.
Reduce heat to a simmer. Add Gourmet Garden Garlic and Chili Pepper, lime leaves, and mushrooms to broth. S Simmer for another 5 minutes.
Add shrimp and cherry tomatoes (if using). Simmer 5-6 minutes, or until shrimp are pink and plump.
Turn heat to low and add 1/2 can coconut milk plus fish sauce. Taste-test the soup for flavor, season with salt if desired. Add Gourmet Garden Chili Pepper or fish sauce (instead of salt) as desired. If too sour for your taste, add 1 tsp. brown sugar; if too salty, add a squeeze of lime juice. Add more coconut milk if you want your soup richer/creamier, or if it's too spicy for you.
Stir in Gourmet Garden Cilantro and serve in bowls.
