Recipe: Seafood tom yum with quail egg + WORLDFOODS Giveaway

A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from May of WORLDFOODS asking if I would like to try out some of their products. Bottled sauces are convenient for everyday cooking, especially if you are working or have had a busy day but still want to put a nutritious meal on the table.

What I like about WORLDFOODS products is that it is food allergens free, trans-fat free and gluten free with no artificial preservatives, coloring or flavouring, as well as being suitable for vegetarians, vegans, coeliacs and Muslims. In KL, WORLDFOODS products are available at Village Grocer @ Bangsar Village 1, Jaya Grocers @ Intermark, and Hock Choon @ Ampang.

Seafood tom yum with quail egg

One of the sauces that May sent me was the WORLDFOODS Thai Tom Yum Paste. Reading the label, I understand that it is 100% natural made using authentic herbs and spices such as galangal, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, coriander and chillies. It's always great to have a bottle of tom yum paste on standby in my kitchen as I frequently get cravings for this spicy Thai soup and need a quick fix to satisfy my cravings.

WORLDFOODS Thai Tom Yum Paste

My favorite ingredients to add into tom yum are seafood (prawns and squid), grey oyster mushrooms, some chicken slices,onions and spring onions. This time, I also added a few hard boiled quail eggs since I still had half a box in the kitchen waiting to be used up and it turned out to be a good addition. In just 10 minutes, my seafood tom yum was ready. The soup is tangy, spicy and appetizing with the bright red hue- just how I like it.
