Tom Yum Goong
Tom Yum Goong – the BEST Thai Tom Yum recipe you’ll find online. Loaded with shrimp, mushroom, Tom Yum soup is spicy, sour, savory and addictive!
Tom Yum is probably one of the most well-know Thai recipes and I have the BEST and most authentic Tom Yum Goong recipe for you here. The best Tom Yum calls for shrimp stock, which you can make by boiling the shrimp heads with water, a trick I learned from Chez Pim. A good stock guarantees the great taste of Tom Yum. However, you can also make it with water or canned chicken stock. Another secret is the use of nam prik pao (Thai roasted chili paste). Of course, you can’t do without the aromatics: galangal, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, bird’s eye chilies, etc. To make Bangkok-style Tom Yum which is creamier and whiter in color, add a few tablespoons of evaporated milk to the soup, a trick I learned from She Simmers. Once you have these ingredients, you will have the best bowl of homemade tom yum you’ve ever tasted, I promise. Enjoy!
