Tom Yum Soup Noodles With Coconut Milk

This is my quick version of Tom Yum Soup Noodles With Coconut Milk. This recipe uses ready-made Tom Yum and roasted chili paste. Coconut milk enhances the soup’s taste and consistency, which complements well with the thin rice stick noodles. This is a simple noodle soup that can be enjoyed at anytime!

Tom Yum Soup Noodles With Coconut Milk


150 g Dried Thin Rice Stick Noodles, cooked according to the manufacturer’s instructions
6 Large River Prawns or White Prawns
4 Scallops
1 Tomato, halved and quartered or 6 Grape Tomatoes, halved
6- 8 Small Oyster Mushrooms or any variety
A Small Handful Coriander Leaves
1 Lime, cut into wedges

5 Cups (1.25 Liter) Chicken Stock
1 Lemongrass, sliced
1” Piece Galangal, sliced
4 Bird’s Eye Chilies
3 Kaffir Lime Leaves, torn
3 Tbsp Tom Yum Paste
1 Tbsp Roasted Chili Paste
8 Tbsp Coconut Milk
¼ tsp Sea Salt to taste


Place the chicken stock, lemongrass, galangal, chilies, and lime leaves in a medium saucepan. Bring to the boil and reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes.

Then mix in the Tom Yum paste, roasted chili paste, and coconut milk. Bring to the boil, add prawns, scallops, tomatoes, mushroom, sea salt, and simmer for a further 2 to 3 minutes or until the prawns and scallops are cooked. Season the soup with additional salt, if necessary.

Ladle the soup into bowls with rice noodles and serve with coriander and lime wedges.

  10. This is a work of art! So pretty, I could look at it all day. I had varied Tom Yum experiences on my recent trip to Thailand. The very first one was a Mekong Fish version with lots of bones and none of the tomato red colour that I was expecting. It was a muddy brown instead. Not sure if it was a regional variation or not? I started to suspect that the Tom Yum we eat here in New Zealand is different to the version they have in Thailand. Thoughts?

  11. @bunnyeatsdesign: There are many versions of Tom Yum, even in Thailand. I am not familiar with the Tom Yum served in New Zealand. However, over here in Vancouver, the soup has been toned down to suit the local.

  12. gorgeous tom yum soup!♥! :)

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
