Tom Yum Goong

Remember the BITES we posted yesterday? Well, today we’ll be using one of those, the Kaffir lime leaves, which is a very important ingredient for this dish 🍃 Goong means “prawn” in Thai, as the soup is usually made with prawns but you can tweak the recipe to your liking by using fish, meat or even make it vegetarian! This recipe is #quickandeasy to make and just dump in more chillies if that’s what satisfies your tastebuds 😊🔥
