A Southeast Asian classic, tom yum is best known for its hot and sour qualities. A base of aromatics like chiles, galangal and makrut lime leaves combine to make the finished dish distinctly delicious. Here, we’re taking that foundation and running with it. Our version, made with traditional tom yum paste, is tempered by the smooth richness of coconut milk. Simmering the shrimp and fresh, tender noodles in the sauce infuses them with complex, balanced flavors. Topped with fresh herbs like cilantro and Thai basil, this dish is truly the definition of yum.

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high. Peel and mince the garlic and ginger. Trim off the ends of the gai lan stems; roughly chop the gai lan.

In a medium bowl, combine the coconut milk powder and ½ cup of water; stir until smooth.

2 Cook the aromatics:

In a large pan, heat 2 teaspoons of oil on medium-high until hot. Add the garlic and ginger. Cook, stirring occasionally, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until softened and fragrant. Add the tom yum paste. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until toasted and fragrant.

5 Finish the noodles:

Add the shrimp, coconut milk powder mixture and ¾ cup of water to the pan of vegetables and noodles. Cook, stirring frequently to coat the noodles in sauce, 2 to 4 minutes, or until the shrimp are cooked through. (Be careful not to boil the sauce, as the coconut milk powder mixture may separate.)
