Red Thai Prawn Curry


Hello everyone, today’s recipe is for Red Thai Prawn Curry. To keep this recipe perfect for a quick week night meal I’ve used a shop bought red Thai paste. If you have a little extra time and the ingredients then you might want to experiment and make your own curry paste.

If you aren’t a fan of prawns you can easily substitute this for chicken. Just add in the diced chicken at the beginning when you are cooking the vegetables. I think I’ll make a Green Thai chicken curry next time I fancy this kind of food.
