I am a huge fan of Thai food and ramen. So this Thai Shrimp Noodle soup is a combination of my two favorite things and the end result is lip-smackingly delicious. The soup is everyone’s favorite Tom Yum.
What sets this Thai shrimp noodle soup apart from other recipes you will fine online is its authentic and amazing taste. You won’t find a better recipe online, I can guarantee you that.
It’s slightly different from my Tom Yum Noodle Soup recipe because I added evaporated cream in this recipe. It tastes like you are eating in Bangkok!
This recipe is perfect as a quick lunch or weeknight dinner. It’s filling and satisfying. Imagine springy ramen in a hot, spicy, creamy, sour, and savory Tom Yum soup, with succulent shrimp, plus mushrooms and tomatoes.
If you follow my recipe, I guarantee that you will slurp everything up and dry until nothing left in your bowl. Enjoy!
