Cooking ~ Spicy Tomyam in History!

My first attempt to make tomyam with prawns.

Okay... I didn't blend all the spices from scratch and I am a self confessed lazy mom because I use the ready packed tomyam spice. BUT... I added some extras for better taste and personal touch.

Am waiting for my guinea pigs to come home to taste it and hopefully 2 thumbs up :)

Here's the recipe to share:

  1. Medium sized prawns (cleaned & keep the shells intact)
  2. A packet of tomyam spice of any brand (since this dish is new in my kitchen vocab, I have yet to study which brand is worth the try)
  3. Fresh tomatoes wedges
  4. Spring onion
  5. Parsley
  6. Onion slices
  7. Garlic
  1. Saute garlic and onions for about 1 minute
  2. Add in the spice and saute till fragrant
  3. Add in parsley and spring onions
  4. Add in water (according to preferred consistency) and simmer
  5. Add in prawns and it is ready once all prawns are thoroughly cooked
  6. Sprinkle the rest of the spring onion and parsley as garnishing.

Prawns added in and simmering

Hello Cheri!
Thanks. I believe cilantro is also known as parsley? Yes, I did add parsley to this dish :)
