Tom Yum Goong (Spicy Thai Soup with Shrimp) ต้มยำกุ้ง
I believe Tom yum goong could be the ultimate flavor of Thailand. Shrimp, mushrooms, tomatoes, lemongrass, galangal, chilies, kaffir lime leaves, onions, and a host of other lively ingredients and herbs are boiled together to create the magical taste of the soup, usually very spicy!
The clear version is known as tom yum nam sai (ต้มยำน้ำใส), while the creamy version is known as tom yum nam kon(ต้มยำน้ำข้น).
There are countless different variations and ways to make the sour spicy soup, but I particularly like it with either shrimp or mixed seafood just for a change.
