Thai Needle Mushrooms and Shrimp | Yum Hed Khem Thong Goong Sod

Yum Hed Khem Thong Goong Sod – Needle Mushroom and Shrimp Dressed with Spicy Sour Salad


500g. Cooked Needle Mushroom
2 tbsp. minced chili peppers
2 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. fish sauce
1 tsp. sugar
1 tbsp. sliced pickled garlic
1 handful cut Chinese celery
1/4 cup sliced spring onion (thin and circle shape)
1/4 cup sliced tomatoes
500g. shrimps
3 tbsp. drinking water


Cooking Instructions:

1. Clean, peal and de-veined the shrimps and soft boiled in boiling water.

2. In a bowl, add sugar, fish sauce, chili peppers, lemon juice, pickled garlic, water and mix well. Taste it the way you like. You may add more sugar if you like it sweet. However, it’s better to have sour and spicy flavor to lead.

3. When you get the taste you like, add tomatoes, onion, and celery. Mix well. Add more drinking water if you want it juicy.

Here is the trick, keep adding little by little until you get the right taste. After 3-4 recipes of spicy and sour salad, you can do it with out having to measure the amount. 🙂

4. Mix mushroom and shrimps on a plate and dress the salad on top. Or you can just throw them into a salad bowl, mix well and then serve.


I suggest the second way because it will make all the taste to take place in every bite to eat. 😀 Anyway, do you know what is it when I call that mushroom “Needle Mushroom”? It looks like needle to me and I translated it from Thai words. Don’t know what it’s called in English.. 🙁

I’d better not embarrass myself calling it in a wrong way like I did in one of my other cooking videos. (If you have seen that one!)
