Tom Yum Paste

Cooking Instructions

Heat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Lightly grease the grill or pan with vegetable oil. 

Grill the tiger prawns for 2-3 minutes on each side until they turn pink and opaque. Remove from the grill and set aside. 

In the same pan, sauté the Tom Yum paste until fragrant. 

Add mushrooms and cook until softened. 

Add cooked jasmine rice, breaking up clumps, and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes. 

Mix in fish sauce, soy sauce, lime juice, and sugar.

Adjust seasoning to taste. 

Garnish with fresh coriander leaves. Serve with lime wedges.

Note: If making Tom Yum paste from scratch is not an option, you can find instant Tom Yum paste at most grocery stores or online. Look for it in the international foods section or in the Asian foods aisle.
