Creamy Tom Yum Goong has become very popular in Thailand in the past several years. It’s the richer, more voluptuous sister of the classic “clear broth” tom yum goong. In this video I also review basic techniques and ingredients essential in making the best tom yum possible!
When it comes to Thai soups, tom yum is indisputably the most popular, and many would argue most delicious soup there is. It happens to also be a very easy recipe you can whip up on a weeknight, and all the herbs I used, lemongrass, galangal, kaffir lime leaves, can call be frozen and you can quickly throw them in directly from the freezer!
Also check out my other tom yum recipes, I have recipes for tom yum chicken, tom yum fish and also vegetarian/vegan tom yum!
