Shrimp Tom Yum or Tom Yum Goong must be one of the best known Thai dishes abroad. It's a subtle blend of hot and sour with citrus overtones derived from lime juice and kaffir lime peel. Be careful not to overcook the shrimps as they will become tough very easily.

•Straw mushrooms can be substituted with eryngii mushrooms, oyster mushrooms, Hungarian mushrooms or champignon mushrooms.
