Spicy Thai Soup with Jumbo Prawns

Soup & Salad | September 20, 2016 | By

I like my Thai soup hot and spicy, and this bowl of absolute yumminess will definitely warm your belly! It’s flavored with spicy Tom Yum paste, which can be purchased at most Asian markets but also online (Tom Yum Paste). This recipe has very few ingredients but packs a powerful punch, and the jasmine rice will temper the heat. If you can’t find jumbo prawns with the head on, simply use any jumbo shrimp you can find at the market!

  • 10 cups water
  • 5 tablespoons Tom Yum paste (more for extra spicy)
  • 8 kaffir lime leaves (fresh or dried)

  • 1 small bunch fresh cilantro (stems on)
