    i made this with squid, mussel meat and prawn and it was fabulous. i also made it with a vindaloo curry sauce, it works fine. Doing it again tonight, this time with a small fillet of whiting, prawns and mussel meat  -  27 Feb 2017


    Great recipe! I added the recommended tablespoon of peanut butter and also added a tablespoon of my favorite habenero hot sauce,(Ebese Zozo) which is a curried hot sauce. Next time I'll double the curry paste and add a bit more lime juice. It also seems my jumbo prawns finished quicker than the sea scallops so I'd start the scallops about 2 minutes before I throw in the prawns next time. Very tasty if you like coconut curries, yum!  -  05 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was delightful. I substituted regular for light coconut milk which made a very rich sauce and also added a little extra lime juice. I served it with basmati rice and a hot pepper sauce on the side. Now my kitchen is my new favorite place to have curry for dinner!  -  13 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
