This bowl of tom yum goong (Thai hot and spicy soup with prawns) is simply perfect for the cooler December nights. I cheated by using my favourite instant tom yum paste I bought from Bangkok so whipping it up is both fast and easy.

My family says my soup looks and tastes as good as the ones we ate at Thai eateries! We love to enjoy this addictively spicy soup with a bowl of steamed rice, or cook it with some glass noodles (tang hoon) as an easy one-dish meal.

      I have no idea if this can be found in Singapore (but not seen it at our local supermarkets so far). If you want to look for it, Golden Mile may be a good place to try. But I think most tom yum pastes are quite decent, after all you will be adding aromatics to cook it, and you can season the soup to taste.

    My favorite Thai soup! Not that there is a variety of Thai soups for me to choose from but I do like the “hot and sour” aspect of it

    Your tom yum goong looks so much better than those served in the restaurants! Gorgeous clicks!

    Nice and spicy. Lots of exciting flavours in a soup.

    I bought 1 pack of pre-pack paste and cooked together with those pre-pack spices at Fairprice. It’s turns out to be bitter, do you have any idea why is it so ?
