Tom Yum Seafood

Kali ni saya cuba resepi Mixed Seafood Tom Yum (Tom Yum Taleh) dari Temple of Thai. Senang dan cepat, Rasanya pun boleh tahan.


  • 3 cups water
  • 1-2 pcs fresh lemon grass, tough tops cut off, cut into 3" lengths
  • 3 pcs garlic, smashed with the side of the cleaver
  • 2 tsp of sea salt (only!)
  • 2 small whole squid (optional), cleaned and sliced crosswise into 1/2" rings
  • 3/4-1 lb dark, oily flesh fish such as mackerel, cleaned and cut into 3" long pieces (including bones and head if you like)
  • 1/4 lb small to medium-sized shrimp, heads and shell removed, tail intact
  • 2-3 limes, juiced
  • 3-4 pcs fresh kaffir lime leaf
  • 4+ fresh Thai chilies (prik kee noo), as few/many as you like
  • Fish sauce,
  • Fresh tomato, sliced lengthwise into 6 pieces


Bring water, lemon grass, garlic, and sea salt to a boil for 4 minutes. There should be just enough water to cover the seafood once it is all added, by about 1 inch.

Add squid and fish. Boil another 2 minutes. Add shrimps. Add juice of 2 limes, kaffir lime leaf, chilies. Taste and adjust seasoning with fish sauce if needed. Add tomato. Turn off heat. Serve with large soup spoons and jasmine rice.
