    I tried to cook Tom Yam soup on my own once. It was a total disaster. The soup was very thin and tastes more like salt water with lime juice.

    I prefer to put the prawns in last with the high boiling flame then turn off right away then serve, topped with cilontro,kaffir lime leaves and chopped green onion.

    The prawns will taste sweeter, kaffir lime in last the aroma will be fresh. Yum Yum.

    Chino, you got it right on the shrimps,,2 minutes of cooking is to long and 4 min and they wont be fit to eat,,They cook them way to long here too. But here they use fresh water shrimps and they do not have much flavor anyway.

    And incase that you didn't know,,coriander is celantro, except that celantro is spanish word for it.
