Tom Yum Soup is a spicy Thai soup. It’s a quick soup that will only take about 15 minutes of preparation and 15 minutes of cooking time. It’s great to make when you get home late from work, but want a meal that looks like you slaved for hours!
My husband caught his limit of 15 razor clams recently. He is our resident seafood chef, so decided to try his hand at making this soup using his fresh clams. Any seafood that you have on hand will work though! We looked at many recipes and chose the ingredients that we thought we would like best and experimented.
We are not Thai food experts, but the soup tasted great to us. He did use two limes and I thought it was a bit too sour. I would use one lime and serve extra lime wedges on the side. Also next time I would add broccoli, baby bok choy, and basil, because I love healthy recipes and we just prefer more vegetables in our meals! This was a really flavorful healthy soup recipe though, and something completely different than we usually make. Tom Yum soup is sure to be a winner on cold nights when you need a bit of spice to warm you up. I would serve it with a salad and chunk of artisan bread. Enjoy!
You could also substitute tofu for the seafood, change the fish sauce to soy sauce, and use vegetable broth for a vegetarian/vegan option.
