Tom Yum Taley
Thai tom yum can be a flavoursome starter when served with a little steamed white rice or served with sticky rice as a main dish. You can either place some rice in a bowl and serve the soup on top or serve the rice on the side (I prefer it separate, I'm not a big fan of soggy rice).
What I love most about Tom Yum soup is the fantastic fresh flavours from the ingredients as they are being cooked whole in the water instead of being a paste or jelly. Tom yum goong (prawn) is the probably the most popular kind of tom yum soup, but I love seafood (Talay in Thai), so I generally add more in this particular soup.
This is definitely a dish to host at a Thai dinner party as this will blow the minds (and the mouths) of your guests. If you are cooking this recipe, please do take pictures and tag us @maejumsamunprai on social media, we would love to share!
