I love this Thai Green Curry because of the bursting flavours. It’s very delicious, yet so simple! Here’s how I like to make mine! 😊

Ingredients

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
4 Spring Onions
2/3 Tablespoons Thai Green Curry Paste
2 Cloves Garlic (finely chopped)
1 Bag King Prawns (Peeled)
6ozs Coconut Milk
2 Tablespoons Fish Sauce
2 Tablespoons French Basil (chopped)
Salt (to taste)
Fresh Basil Leave (finely chopped)
1 Scotch Bonnet Chilli (optional)
1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper

Method

Heat up a large wok or skillet, add the oil and heat up on medium flame, add spring onions and when softened & green curry paste. Sauté for a minute. Then add prawns, chilli, salt & garlic and cook for about 2-3 minutes. Lastly, add the coconut milk, fish sauce & stir to mix well. Let it simmer for another 2-3 minutes until shrimp is cooked properly. Take off heat. Chop a little bit of the greens from the spring onions & fresh basil, sprinkle over the top! Serve with Basmati Rice! Bon Appétit!!!! 😊

P.S. If you can’t get a hold of Thai Green Curry Paste you can make it yourself. Here’s how to:
