Pretty Tasty! It didn't really remind me of anything Tom Yum though... when I think of Tom Yum dishes, I usually expect an intense spiciness and tartness. This Tom Yum marinade was much milder and sweeter. I still liked it though, and it paired nicely with the coconut-mango rice I made. Thanks for sharing!
