Extremely Spicy Thai Fried Chili Paste
The hottest chile peppers in Thailand are dried and roasted, pounded into a paste and mixed with garlic, shallot and oil. That's all there is to this paste, and it really packs a punch.
Notice in our Tom Yum Street Vendor Video she is adding this mixture to the soup, making the chile flavor strong and deep. It doesn't take much, as you will discover. This paste is the hottest we have ever offered, and caution you to use it sparingly.
Comes in a generous 14 oz plastic jar with double sealed lid but the product may arrive with minute traces of chile oil seeping out around the lid. It is brand new stock and perfectly safe to consume, as this is extremely high in spice heat which is a natural preservative in it's own right.
Ingredients: chile, garlic, red onion, vegetable oil. All natural. Product of Thailand.
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. We like to start with a simple vegetable broth instead, so our recipe starts with the broth instructions then continues with how to make the tom yum.
It's important to use "prik pao" in your tom yum and we have several brands, with slightly varying tastes depending on your preference.
