Spicy Thai Curry Recipe
This is a spicy Thai prawn curry recipe that I made for some pescatarian friends who visited recently. It is loosely based on my favourite chicken curry that I make regularly, so I knew it would work well with prawns instead of chicken. And it did! The extra addition of some Thai red curry paste added an extra Thai dimension to the dish.
