Those of you who visit regularly know how much my family and I enjoy noodles. Since this is my first ever cooking video, I chose to cook this quick and easy Tom Yum Noodle Soup. It is big on taste and the script was a little easier to compose. Even so, there were many “bloopers”! Perhaps I will share them with you a little further down the road. For now, we will keep to the script.
This delicious Tom Yum Noodle Soup takes less than 20 minutes to prepare using ready-made tom yum paste in a jar and pancit canton, a type of pre-fried wheat noodles made in the Philippines and easily available here at the Asian markets. These noodles have appeared in my Cantonese Style Fried Noodles, Clay Pot Noodles, and Pancit Canton recipes on this blog. Do check them out.
With the video feature, I will not be including the step-by-step pictorial instructions here but you can still print the recipe as always using the “Print” link located on the top right hand corner of the green area below. I hope you enjoy the video. Thanks for watching and please do subscribe to my channel.
