Hot Sticky Wings
Tom Yum is the most famous of Thai soups. I just love the zing and fresh flavours of these soups, they are light yet filling all at the same time. These soups are also known for having amazing health benefits too. With anti inflamatory effects due to the mixture of potent herbs and spices used in them such lemongrass, garlic , ginger and kaffier lime leaves. It is usually offered as a tonic to boost your immunity when you are full of a cold - a bit like the Thai version of chicken soup.
By adding coconut milk to this dish is makes it into the lesser known Tom Khaa soup. The coconut milk add a delicate sweetness and makes the soup rich and oh so satisfying. Not only do I love the flavours of these soups, they are super quick to make and deliciously healthy. Plus if you don't like prawns then try it with chicken, vegetables or tofu.
