Panang red seafood curry

There are a lot of red curry pastes out there, but this is the best. If you would like it more fiery, add a little extra paste.

Method

First of all, place the onion, garlic, chilli and kaffir lime leaves in a mini-chopper, and whiz it all till it is almost a paste.

Now heat the oil in a medium saucepan, add the onion mixture and the curry paste and cook over a medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring.

After that, pour in the coconut milk and, when that’s bubbling, add the frozen salmon and seafood medley or other seafood and continue to cook, uncovered, for a further 5-7 minutes, or until the prawns have turned pink and the seafood is cooked through.

Now stir in the lime juice and serve straight away with some Thai jasmine rice.
