Tom Yum Goong Soup Recipe (Tom Yum Goong) – Authentic Thai Style
One of the most famous Thai dishes, and in my opinion one of the best soups in the world, is Thai Tom Yum Kung (ต้มยำกุ้ง).
What I like most about Tom Yum Kung (ต้มยำกุ้ง) is the flavor of lemongrass, galangal, kaffir lime leaves, fresh Thai chili pepper, and fresh lime juice. All this combines to create a healthy and comforting soup that brightens up your palate.

Two Versions of Tom Yum Soup
If you love eating Tom Yum Goong Soup (ต้มยำ), you may already know his two main variations of this dish.
Tom yum kung nam sai (ต้มยำกุ้งน้ำใส) is a tom yum with shrimp in a clear soup, and tom yum kung nam kong (ต้มยำกุ้งน้ำข) is ้น ) is a creamy and milky version.
Contrary to what many people believe, tom yam is creamed with coconut milk, but it is actually canned condensed milk (as opposed to sweetened condensed milk). เทียม).
Note: If you’re looking for a coconut milk-based Thai soup, check out my Tom Kha Gai recipe.
This tom yum goong recipe will show you how to make both versions (both are common in Thailand), depending on your preferred style.
Kung (กุ้ง) or shrimp is one of the most popular ingredients for this soup, but you can also mix seafood such as squid or chicken or fish to make tom yum (also one of my favorite variations) is).
When I went to the market before making this recipe, they had a huge stock of kummenam (กุ้งแม่น้ำ) or shrimp, so I had to buy it. However, you can actually use any type of shrimp or other meat you like.
Essential Tom Yum Soup Ingredients:
The most absolutely essential ingredients for this tom yum recipe are the trio of Thai herbs:
This trio of Thai ingredients is what really gives tom yum its flavor, and without them you would not have a complete dish.
Other ingredients are still important though, especially Thai chilies (พริกขี้หนู), mushrooms (เห็ด), cilantro (ผักชี), tomatoes (มะเขือเทศ), sweet white onions (หอมใหญ่), lime juice (มะนาว), sugar (น้ำตาล), and fish sauce (น้ำปลา).
Full list of ingredients listed in the official recipe section below.
I like to use something called nam prik pao (น้ำพริกเผา) in my recipe for tom yum, and it’s especially necessary if you make the creamy version.
Nam prik pao (น้ำพริกเผา) is basically a Thai roasted chili sauce that’s packed with flavor and usually bought in a can these days.
