Thai Prawn Soup with Lemongrass, 'Tom Yum Goong'
Tom Yum is both hot and sour, and it's one of the main signature dishes that defines Thai flavor. We've perfected this recipe and assure you it tastes great.
Typically a chef will use a pork or chicken stock then add the basic fresh staples to create the tom yum, as in our video: Railroad Chef Prepares Tom Yum.
Making a stock is really simple and we use chicken here, but feel free to use a bone-in pork also. You may also like our version of tom yum made with a coconut water base.
It's important to use "prik pao" in your tom yum and we have several brands, with slightly varying tastes depending on your preference. In this recipe we are pleased to use Mae Pranom White Can Prik Pao. We also suggest Mae Pranom Prik Pao, Blue Lid.
