This flavourful dish was featured in Netflix’s documentary Street Food, Bangkok episode. In the documentary it’s made by Jay Fai, a street food vendor who earned a Michelin Star for her “elevated street food” which uses a lot of large, expensive seafood in otherwise common dishes.
Dry tom yum is basically the stir-fry version of the famous tom yum soup most people know about. It’s quick, it’s easy, but with bold, refreshing flavours. I’m using a mix of seafood for this, but you can use only 1 or 2 types of seafood as you wish. The important thing is the herbs—lemongrass, galangal and kaffir lime leaves—which is what gives it the iconic flavours of tom yum!
