As mentioned in previous posts, I have some awesome recipes to share.

There will be a few that are Thai which are inspired by my trip to Thailand.

Tom Yum Goong Thai Soup by Rubina Hassan:

2 – 3 tablespoons Thai green curry paste
1 thumb size piece of ginger sliced
1 liter of water
4 kafir lime leaves
1 lemongrass stalk, sliced into 2cm pieces
2 – 3 tablespoons fish sauce
2 red chillies, left whole or sliced
1, 5 teaspoons sugar
3 tablespoons lime juice
2 green onions sliced
1 can mushrooms, optional to slice them
600g shrimp/ prawns , peeled
Coriander, chopped


Put the pot on high and add the water.
When it becomes hot, add in green curry paste, ginger, lime leaves, lemongrass, and chillies.

Simmer the broth for 15 minutes

Add in the fish sauce, sugar, mushrooms, and simmer for 10 minutes.

Lastly add in shrimp and cook for ten minutes until they turn pink.

Remove from the heat.
When serving add in coriander, green onions and a teaspoon or 3 of lime/lemon juice, and taste. There should be a balance of salty, spicy and sour.

When dishing up, please do not eat the lemongrass, ginger or lime leaves.
Although they flavour the soup, they are not pleasant to eat.

Serve with crusty bread if desired.
