Tom Yam Paste

Recommended Posts

I bought some Tom Yam paste (Mae Ploy Brand) and would like to use it.

Does anyone have any suggestion as to what to do with it?

Should I just use it as I do curry paste?

Please help.

Do you mean , you will use "tom yum paste" for cooking curry?

As I know , you can use "tom yum paste" for cooking

-Tom yum ( with shrimp/seafood/chicken/mushroom..ect)

-Tom Kha Gai (chicken soup with coconut milk) (or other meat ,mushroom)

anyway .. dont put lemon juice in the boiling soup ..it will make a better taste... Just add the lemon juice when the soup is in bowl before eating

Mae Ploy Paste is alright if you're outside of THailand, otherwise not that spectacular. - The best are made by your favorite vendor in the local markets. - It's overall taste is a little strong on salt and galangal for me. Most tom yam pastes in THailand have alot more use of hom daeng and namtaan (shallots n palm sugar respectively), making it much more tasty and delicate as an addition to a soup.

When I use the mae ploy stuff though, for a Thai take on things, I like to marinate some chicken or pork with a rub of it, some fish sauce, and some sugar. This makes for some fine grilled meat the next day !

The Thais don't do it this way, it's a fusion thing admittedly.
