A Quick Tom Yum Goong#FishFriday

A Tom Yum Goong is a Spicy Shrimp Soup. It's Thailand's most famous soup. Healthy, flavorful, and delicious. Made with Tom Yum paste this is one of the easiest and quickest soups to make.

Soups or Stews from Around the World is the month's theme for the Event for Fish Friday Foodies, and our Host is Camilla M. Mann.

This soup is so spicy. Made it as per the instructions given in the packet.  To wash this down I, boiled egg noodles and had with it. Anyway this was a quick , easy to make and with the noodles it became a complete meal.

Tablespoons Tom Yum Paste/One Sachet
6 Button Mushrooms - chopped 
6 Large Prawns

  1. Sneha, this looks delicious...and spicy! It's one of my favorites, too. Thanks for joining me.

  2. I'm going to have to hunt down some Tom Yum! I love spicy.

  3. I've never had tom yum spice nor soup. Is it spicy hot or just spicy flavorful?
