Instructions
  1. Bring 1 gallon (4 L) of water to a boil.
  2. Remove from the heat and add the noodles.
  3. Soak until the noodles are tender, 5 to 10 minutes (see package directions).
  4. Drain and divide the noodles between 4 to 6 individual soup bowls.
  5. Meanwhile, simmer the stock, lemon grass, and reserved shrimp shells in a large pot over moderate heat for 15 minutes.
  6. Add the hot chile and simmer for 5 minutes.
  7. Strain, discard the solids, and return the stock to the pot. Immediately before serving, bring the stock to a simmer and add the shrimp, lime juice, salt, and pepper and cook just until the shrimp are firm and opaque, about 2 minutes.
  8. Divide the beans sprouts and scallions between the soup bowls and ladle the soup into the bowls. Garnish with the fresh herbs.
