More About This Recipe
  • I don't know if this is true for everyone, but for me, the colors of Thai curry specifically go with a certain type of protein. Yes, it may say "Your choice of protein" on the menu, but with me, I always get green curry with chicken, red curry with beef, and of course, yellow curry with fish or seafood. Yellow curry is a bit different than the other two colors. It has more in common with an Indian curry than its colorful Thai siblings. This is because it has a spice mixture similar to the Indian Garam Masala mixed into the curry paste. The ingredient list of a dish like this may look intimidating, but if you have a stocked spice cabinet, you are good to go! The rest is just blending everything down to a paste and simmering some fish on the stovetop.
