Spicy Thai Baked Tom Yum Fish

It’s amazing how quick this is to prepare with so few ingredients, resulting in a restaurant-quality dish. It’s one of those one-pot wonders which means less washing up, and it’s effortless to prepare to result in the most satisfying cozy bowl of comfort served with piping hot Jasmine rice.

We all get cravings for this dish in our house. It’s perfect for whipping up last minute for a super quick dinner. You really can’t go wrong with it too, as it’s so simple.

My Mama taught me this one many years ago (watch this space as loads more of her fabulous recipes to come)

Why make your own Tom Yum paste? Readily available in supermarkets, it comes in a little glass jar which is so packed with the flavors of Thailand.. lemongrass, galangal, shallots, fish sauce, kaffir lime, and chili… don’t wait too long to try it because once you do I promise it will be a regular for you too!
