Tom Yam Goong Soup (Hot and Sour Prawn Soup)

Jul 10

One of my favorite Thai dish is this sour hot soup called Tom Yam. I love the sour taste , the aromatic coriander flavor and the spices. During my last Bangkok trip, I bought packets of Tom Yum paste just so I can cook this dish. I have always wanted to cook this dish from scratch. The opportunity came when renowned chef J. Gamboa of Cirkulo Restaurant demonstrated Thai cooking as guest chef of The Maya Kitchen. He was joined by Chef Malichat of Azuthai Restaurant. Cirkulo and Azuthai are parts of a chain of restaurants that includes Milky Way at Powerplant Rockwell Mall and V-Mall Greenhills; Azuthai, Tsukiji and Milky Way Café all at the Milkyway Building, 900 Arnaiz Avenue corner Paseo de Roxas, Makati.

Try this Tom Yum Goong (Hot and Sour Prawn Soup with Lemongrass, Kaffir Lime Leaves and Fresh Coriander) recipe.
