Fucking unbelievably simple. Add the paste to the water and put on the stove. Mix and bring to the boil quickly. Add mushrooms, prawn and milk and bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer for 10-15 mins. Add chopped coriander, mix and then
bowl up. Squeeze tiniest amount of lime when soup is plated.

Use tom yum paste from Chinese supermarket and don’t use any fancy pants stuff from Tesco or Sainsburys.
Use dessert spoons NOT tablespoons – tom yum paste is strong!
