I am so excited to be sharing this recipe! I think that Tom Yum Soup was on my list of recipes that I would want to share on this blog before I even started it. If you’ve never had Tom Yum soup before, it is a spicy and sour soup from Southeast Asia (think Thailand, Malaysia, and Laos). Like many soups, there are so many ways to go about making it, but the four ingredients (in my mind) that are essential are: fish sauce, lime (normally kaffir lime leaves), lemongrass and chilli. It’s all about balancing the sweet, sour, spicy and salty and you end up with a light but deeply comforting soup, jammed with fresh herbs, shellfish and noodles- does it get any better than that?
