Delicious Tom Yum Soup Tutorial

No, not the movie! The Soup!  Tom yum, or tom yam, is a Thai soup, usually cooked with shrimp (Tom yum is also delicious with chicken).  Tom yum which originally came from central Thailand is now widely served in neighbouring countries such as Cambodia, Brunei, Malaysia, Singapore and Laos and has been popularised around the world.

Tom yum is characterised by its distinct hot and sour flavours, with fragrant spices and herbs generously used in the broth. The basic broth is made of stock and fresh ingredients such as lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, galangal, lime juice, fish sauce, and crushed chili peppers.
