Tom Yum-Style Shrimp & Noodles | Blue Apron

Cooking With Blue Apron
I first posted about my experience with Blue Apron back in January and Sunday night I made one of the most ambitious meals ever and honestly if it wasn't for them, I don't think I would have tried to make it! I don't normally eat Thai food nor would I think to try to make it! After following the recipe, I realized it actually wasn't that hard and couldn't wait to share with you! 
Cooking With Blue Apron

What You'll Need: 

+ 8 ounces of shrimp
+ 1 pound tom yum noodles
+ 1/2 cup coconut milk powder
+ 2 garlic cloves
+ 1 bunch Gai Lan - this is like a leafy spinach
+ 1 lime
+ 1 bunch cilantro
+ 1 bunch basil
+ 2 tablespoons of tom yum paste 
+ 1 inch piece of ginger
+ 1/3 cup of peanuts
The benefits of attempting this type of meal with the Blue Apron service is that these harder to find ingredients are already included and you can really taste the freshness in each meal. 
Cooking With Blue Apron
1. After you have washed and chopped your fresh produce put off to the side - make sure the Gai Lan ends are chopped off. 
2. Heat a large pot of water so that it starts boiling
3. In a medium bowl stir the coconut milk powder with 1/2 a cup of water until smooth
4. In a large pan heat 2 teaspoons of oil and add the garlic and ginger for about 1 minute - until you start to smell the aromas
5. Add in the gain lan, half the basil and 2 tablespoons of water and season with salt and pepper! About 2-4 minutes!

6. Once the water has boiled, place the noodles to cook for about 4 minutes...you want them to be a little firm to the bite - transfer them to the pan once done
7. Add the shrimp, coconut milk powder mixture, 1/2 a cup of water all together into the pan
8. Cook until the shrimp is thoroughly cooked - once done remove from heat and stir in the juice of two lime wedges!

Garnish with cilantro, peanuts and the other two halves of the lime wedges. All that's left to do is enjoy! 
Cooking With Blue Apron
This recipe took about 30 minutes including prep time to make, as is the case for almost all Blue Apron meals and was under 600 calories! I'm already looking forward to the lamb meatball stew and blackened cod that's on their menu this week!

How ambitious do you like to be with your cooking? Are you a fan of Thai food?

  1. Ok, so not a shrimp fan (actually not a seafood fan :-| ) but this looks really delish and I love that everything is ready to go for you and even though it seems difficult it's actually easy! I love meals that seem like you spend hours slaving away but were really super easy to make!

  17. Looks so good! I can't wait to hear your thoughts on the cod. I love seafood!

  18. I'm not ambitious at all! I really don't even like cooking but I love the idea of having everything you need for a meal delivered to your door! How does it work with stuff like shrimp? Were you nervous to eat it? Looks yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yum! It looks like you nailed this recipe. Glad you're enjoying the Blue Apron service!

    ReplyDelete
  20. 30 minutes total? That's really not bad, plus it looks so yummy. I really like the idea of having every single ingredient you need for a meal sent to you. For as much of a variety you have in a city, it can also be a challenge to find certain things. You want some kind of weird spice? Here you go. Pre shredded cheese? Nope.

  25. That looks awesome. I'm intrigued by this milk powder, I've never cooked with that before.

    ReplyDelete
  26. This looks really good, and I am sure my son would love it! I followed the Tom yum paste back to the wiki link you left, and it doesn't say if it has Soy or not in it - Do you happen to know. My Emry has an intolerance to soy!

    All of the flavors must have melded so well together! Blue apron looks like a really great company - and I would love to give them a try. Have to see if my hubby thinks so too!

  27. Stop! My stomach can't take it. I feel trapped at work right now and totally want to eat this. haha. How do these noodles compare to the ones in peanut thai recipes? Are they similar. I have those on hand at home. (:

  30. I eat thai food probably once a week due the fact we have an amazing restaurant so close to us however this recipe looks amazing. I totally agree whenever I make thai food I buy all the ingredients and it works for just that meal and usually the leftover go to waste. You really are inspiring me to look into this!

    ReplyDelete
  31. That looks amazing and I am super impressed! I've never even attempted Thai food!

    ReplyDelete
  32. This looks amazing! Someone tell Blue Apron to start shipping to KC because I want this so badly!!

  41. Oh that looks amazing. I kind of want to try out blue apron because there are so many ingredients that I can't find ANYWHERE in DC! Can you tailor your deliveries to fit dietary needs?

    And I love Thai but I never cook it!

  43. i would definitely not try this on my own, so i love the idea of trying fancy thing with blue apron. meanwhile, your bowl is so small! haha i'm such a pig when i eat, my bowl would be like 3 times the size.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I think this is definitely the way I would attempt Thai food too! It seems pretty intimidating any other way. Plus, I love all the ingredients measured out exactly how you need them. This looks sooo delish!

  55. When it comes to thai food I always get pad thai and never stray from that! The yum noodles look really interesting, but the flavors of this sound like it would be delicious! And I would love having all of the ingredients you need ready to go!

  56. I may not be skilled enough to even attempt this but it sure looks yummy!!
