  • Just made this was lovely and spicy. Added some shirataki noodles instead of the prawns to give it a little substance... great flavours and would make again in a heartbeat.

  • Does anyone have a good recommendation for an easy alternative to Tom Yam paste? I have Thai Green curry paste, when I've googled how to make my own all it seems to be is the core ingredients of this soup blended together.

  • So true in our kind of very cold weather here in Denmark. A perfect soup. Thank you .

  • lime zest works instead of kaffir lime leaves & if you don't have/can't find the tom yam paste either I use thai red curry paste instead & it's just as tasty

  • Just made this, managed to find all ingredients in Sainsburys, which surprised me. Now, I knew it would make my runny nose runnier but cripes! I am now coughing up a lung as I'm obviously a novice when it comes to strength of heat in this. But I will finish my small bowl & will attempt to freeze some of it for another day I need it. My kitchen smells Devine mind you, quite happy :)

  • This is one benefit of many of Facebook. Cooking for me is one of my fav hobbies and I have been a fan of yours for quite a few years. But this recipe is one of my fav soups. Usually buy a premade hot and sour and added it to chicken or veggies soups I make. Now I have the ingredients , your recipes are always easy and handy at a given notice. and are always excellent...thanks. Nigella Bites was always my all time fav shows. Also, I found the spices required in a local Asian market...

  • I have made this and it is truly delicious. Kaffir leaves look like flat pieces of grass and come in a glass jar :) The ones I used did anyway, you can get ones that looks like leaves, and then cut them into slices yourself.

  • Nigella, this soup sounds lovely. Where would I find keffir? Is it dried or fresh? I have never used it.
