Thai Spicy Shrimp Soup (Tom Yum Koong)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by BecR2400

Delicious, bright and flavorful -- authentic, quick, and EASY too! This Spicy Thai Soup will satisfy your palate!! From a neighbor's cookbook. You can easily use frozen cooked shrimp in this dish, just throw them into the hot stock, and heat through! Note: Use EITHER the fresh chile pepper OR the chile paste, or just a little of each (unless you want it truly HOT)!! ENJOY!
