About this recipe: You can easily get the ingredients in any Asian supermarket. But be careful, this is super spicy - which is the best way to eat Tom Yum! You can use chicken instead of fish if you prefer.
NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED!!! When FAIQAH said this soup was super spicey, they weren't kidding! The recipe was easy enough to follow and the soup did taste great, however, if I made it again I'd personally only put half the chillis in! If you like mega spicey food, to the point where it is a challenge, then this recipe is perfect. It also cured my cold!!! - 31 Mar 2009
This recipe starts out with lots of flavors but got a little bland and I had to add a few more tablespoons of red chili paste. There was lots of vegetables and proteins and the 4 cups of water definitely is not enough. I added the coconut milk and the broth quickly became a murky orange instead of the tradition translucent red. I would suggest not using the recommended 1/2 cup of coconut milk since it quickly overwhelms the flavors. - 01 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
