  • 1/2 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 1/2 lb squid, cleaned and sliced

  • 6 cups chicken broth

  • 2 stalks lemongrass, bruised

  • 4 kaffir lime leaves

  • 1 red chili, sliced

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 3 tablespoons fish sauce

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

  • Fresh cilantro and Thai basil (for garnish)


1. Wok-Steamed Seafood Extravaganza:

  • Begin your culinary adventure by placing the shrimp and sliced squid in the wok for a spectacular wok-steaming session. Let the seafood bask in the steam until perfectly cooked. Once done, set aside the succulent treasures, ready to be reunited with the broth.

2. Broth Infusion Magic:

  • Pour the chicken broth into the wok, allowing it to take center stage. Bring the broth to a gentle simmer, setting the stage for the infusion of vibrant flavors. It's here that the wok becomes a magical vessel, transforming simple ingredients into a symphony of taste.

3. Lemongrass, Kaffir Lime Leaves, and Chili Dance:

  • Introduce the bruised lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, and sliced chili to the wok. Watch as these aromatic ingredients perform a flavorful ballet, infusing the broth with their essence. The lemongrass brings a citrusy zest, the kaffir lime leaves add a unique aroma, and the chili contributes a tantalizing kick.

4. Tomato Tango:

  • Stir in the halved cherry tomatoes, adding a burst of freshness and sweetness to the broth. This vibrant addition complements the seafood and enhances the overall visual appeal of your Wok-Steamed Seafood Tom Yum Soup.

5. Fish Sauce and Lime Juice Symphony:

  • Elevate the taste profile with the harmonious addition of fish sauce and lime juice. These key players bring a savory depth and a zesty brightness that dance together, creating a symphony of flavors in your wok. Adjust the quantities to achieve the perfect balance that suits your palate.

6. Flavors Melding Waltz:

  • Allow the broth to simmer gracefully, letting the flavors meld into a cohesive and delightful ensemble. This step is crucial, as it ensures that each spoonful of your soup encapsulates the full spectrum of tastes, from the aromatic lemongrass to the zesty lime.

7. Seafood Reunion Encore:

  • Bring back the star performers – the wok-steamed shrimp and squid – to join the flavor celebration in the wok. Let them absorb the rich broth and become an integral part of the symphony of taste.

8. Garnish Extravaganza:

  • Before serving, garnish your creation with a generous sprinkle of fresh cilantro and Thai basil. These aromatic herbs add a final touch, transforming your Wok-Steamed Seafood Tom Yum Soup into a visual and olfactory masterpiece.


  • There you have it – a wok-steamed extravaganza of Seafood Tom Yum Soup that transports you to the vibrant streets of Thailand. The succulent seafood, aromatic herbs, and infused broth create a culinary masterpiece that's not just a soup but a sensory experience.

Cooking Tips:

  • Experiment with different seafood combinations, such as adding mussels or scallops, to personalize the dish.

  • Adjust the level of spiciness by varying the amount of chili, tailoring it to your heat preference.

  • For an extra layer of richness, consider adding a splash of coconut milk to the broth.
