Love Thai food? Why not try this delicious Thai Green Prawn Curry. Having recently blogged about several Indian curries, I wanted to try something a bit different and just as tasty. This recipe is an amalgamation of several recipes I have found on the internet and from the back of the curry paste jar itself.
It is very easy to cook and a suprisingly light meal too compared to other curries.
2 tbsp Thai Green Curry Paste
400ml Can Coconut Milk
2 tsp Sugar
400g bag Tiger Prawns
100g baby Spinach Leaves or Stir Fry vegetables
Juice of 1 Lime
1 tbsp Thai Fish Sauce
1 Heat 1tbsp of oil in a saucepan and add 2-3 tablespoons of the curry paste and stir in.
2 Add the coconut milk and sugar to the paste, stir in and bring to the boil.
3 Turn down the heat slightly and simmer the curry for 5-7 minutes to reduce the consistency.
3 Add the prawns and stir for 3-5 minutes.
4 Then add the lime juice and fish sauce and let it simmer for a few more minutes.
4 Add some spinach or stir fry vegetables to the curry and cook it through until it has wilted.
Serve with Thai sticky rice.
For a vegetarian alternative, replace the prawns with 2 peeled sweet potatoes.
