Help - why did my Tom Yum soup go bitter [Moved from South board]

atlantanative | Apr 14, 2008 04:25 PM

I made Tom Yum soup yesterday and it was great - went back today and it had a bitter taste - what happened? I left a halved lime and some lemongrass in there - should I have taken it out? I tried to put a little sugar in to offset it, but don't want to make it sweet. Any thoughts?
