Thai Soup Tom Yam with Chicken

Flavourful and intense in taste

Tom Yam soups are well known and much appreciated in Thailand, as well in Laos. They are sour, hot and salty. ‘Tom’ means to boil and ‘Yam’ is what we say when we mix the ingredients to make a spicy and tart salad. In Thailand, you can find a wide variety of these soups. The last word informs us about the ingredient that have been added: Tom Yam Kai is the chicken variant, Tom Yam Kung includes shrimp.

The soup intense taste comes from the tamarind, the lemongrass, the galangal, the chilli and the herbs. The Prik Pao jam is essential and it must be made at home. In case you buy it, it will be necessary to put less at the risk of having an unpalatable soup.

If you do not know it yet, try it, you will not forget it and you'll want to do it again and again. Enjoy with other dishes around, or simply with a bowl of Thai jasmine rice. Bon appétit.
