Thai Gaeng Som Paste, Mae Pranom

Thai Gaeng Som Paste, Mae Pranom
Add to cart$8.65-15oz 

Mae Pranom uses the best ingredients, and always produces a product with true authentic Thai taste. It's very popular in Thailand, most people like it.

Mae Pranom just created a perfect "Gaeng Som" paste that you will love, if you like Thai food. You may not be familiar with Gaeng Som because it's not commonly served in restaurants (perhaps because it's not very well known).

We prepared the recipe on the package and it turned out wonderful, see pictures below.  It's a bit difficult to read the package so here we explain:

Boil 5 cups water then add about 3 tablespoons of Gaeng Som paste. Add 2 stalks fresh lemongrass.  Next add about 1 lb seafood (we used prawn and cod).  Cook for just a minute then add 1 tablespoon palm sugar and 1.5 tablespoon fish sauce (more or less to taste).  Then add sliced green beans, and other vegetables of your choice, 

Gaeng Som is an exotic flavor with mild heat and a nice sweet sour touch.

Often enjoyed by upcountry people who may not want to spend money on coconut milk.

Lead flavors are: sour, sweet, salty. Not very spicy.

Ingredients: onion, dried chile, salt, shrimp paste. All natural.

Made in Thailand.

Gaeng Som

Gaeng Som is a a nice balance of sour, sweet and salty (with not a lot of chile heat).


Thai Sweet & Sour Chicken Soup, 'Kaeng Som Gai'

This is a variant of kaeng som, which is a popular fish soup that is quite common in Thailand. Keang som is quite sour, and this dish has been given a degree of sweetness in keeping with making it from chicken.


Thai Fish Sour Soup, 'Gaeng Som Pla'

This is a popular fish soup that is quite common in Thailand, where it is usually prepared using a freshwater fish "pla chon", or snakehead serpent fish. As an alternative, we suggest using canned herrings packed in brine. It can also be prepared using chicken and chicken stock.
