Heat the oil in a large pan and fry the shallot, white pepper and dried shrimp for 5 minutes until crisp.
Pour in the stock, add the lemongrass and half the winter melon or courgette and simmer gently for 30 minutes.
Add the coconut blossom and simmer again for 15 minutes.
Remove the lemongrass once the melon has broken down but the sweetness has gone into the soup. Add the fish to the pan with the remaining melon and simmer for 5 minutes until the fish is just cooked through.
Add the palm sugar, fish sauce, rice powder, some salt and the herbs to finish.
