Hot & Sour Shrimp Soup (Tom Yum Goong) Recipe

hot-sour-shrimp-soup-tom-yum-goongINGREDIENTS:

  • 2 quarts chicken broth
  • 2 stalks fresh lemongrass, sliced on a bias in 2-inch pieces
  • 4 kaffir lime leaves
  • 1-inch piece fresh galangal or ginger, sliced
  • 2 red chiles, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce, such as nam pla
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 (8-ounce) can straw mushrooms, rinsed and halved
  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled with tails on
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro, chopped

DIRECTIONS:

Bring the stock to the boil over medium heat in a saucepan. Add the lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, galangal, and chiles. Lower the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes to let the spices infuse the broth.

Uncover and add the fish sauce, sugar, and mushrooms. Simmer for 5 minutes. Toss in the shrimp and cook for about 8 minutes until they turn pink. Remove from the heat and add the lime juice, green onions, and cilantro.

Taste for salt and spices; you should have an equal balance of spicy, salty, and sour. It’s a good idea to tell your guest’s that the lemongrass and lime leaves are for flavor only and should be avoided when eating the soup.
