Ok, so I was going to make a prawn salad for dinner last night - however I thought I'd spice things up a bit so I made a curry instead! I love prawns and my husband loves a good hot curry (although i didn't make it too hot!)
It's simple and quick which is just what I love for a mid-week meal. Finally I am joining in with Emma's Easy Peasy weekday dinners which I have been meaning to do for ages - mostly because I forget to take a picture! but not last night!
1 400ml can of coconut milk
1 tbsp yellow curry paste (or you can use red or green) and you can vary how much you want to use!
2 tbsp fish sauce
400gms green (raw) peeled prawns
150g asparagus trimmed and cut
half zucchini, diced
half cup of coriander leaves
Place half the coconut milk into a heavy based saucepan and cook over a medium-high heat for 5 minutes or until it starts to separate. Add the curry paste and cook for 5 minutes stirring until fragrant. Add the fish sauce and the rest of the coconut milk. Bring liquid to the boil then reduce and simmer for around 8 minutes.
Add the asparagus, zucchini and prawns and return to the boil, then reduce once more and simmer for a couple of minutes until the prawns turn pink and are cooked.
Add coriander and serve with steamed rice!
Enjoy with a lovely glass of wine ;-)
