 2 fresh kaffir lime leaves, finely chopped
 1 stalk lemon grass, tender inner part only, roughly chopped
 Juice of half a lime
 2 tablespoons fish sauce
 1 small red Thai chili, finely chopped
 1/2 teaspoon sugar
 2 ounces enoki mushrooms, trimmed, or 1 cup button mushrooms, sliced
 8 ounces raw shrimp, peeled
 2 scallions, cut into short lengths and then into strips
 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro.

1. In a medium saucepan, combine chicken stock, tom yum paste, kaffir lime leaves,
lemon grass, lime juice and fish sauce. Add chili and sugar, and stir.
