Have being craving for Clear Tom Yum Soup ever since my cruise trip back from Phuket where we had an enjoyable authentic Thai dishes for lunch over at Surin Beach (will share more on my Phuket trip in upcoming post soon). Initially I bought a packet of tom yum "seasoning" from Phuket which I wanted to try but after seeking some advice from Amy (Mothering Corner), I decided to try out her recipe using fresh ingredients instead of instant tom yum paste or seasoning.
TOM YUM TALAY
(Hot And Sour Seafood Soup)
And since I cannot decided on using either Fish, Chicken or Prawn to make my tom yum, in the end I just added in everything and come out with this Tom Yum Talay which is also known as Hot And Sour Seafood Soup. From what I had read up, the key for making a bowl of delicious Tom Yum Soup lies on the use of "fresh" ingredients and "proportion" of the Thai fish sauce and lime juice used as it need to balance the taste of the soup so that it is neither too salty nor sour.
Lastly, I would like to thank Amy for sharing her delicious tom yum soup recipe and tips with us.
