    I'm not well versed in Thai cooking, but have had similar soups, some with chicken, some with shimp and/or squid and either may have coconut milk. Called tom ka guy, tom yum guy, etc. Does anyone know which is what? At any rate, this recipe looks fantastic! Thanks for sharing it.

    I love Tom Yam ... sounds great, BUT I have no idea where to get some of the ingredients you cite ... plus some are pretty generic (eg fish sauce).

    Perhaps it's just my inexperience showing.
