Coconut Prawn Curry

    50 minutes

    This is a lovely fragrant curry containing prawns, capsicum, onion and coconut cream. You can make it spicier if you like - this is fairly mild.

    Serves: 4 

    • 220g peeled and cooked prawns
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
    • 2 medium onions, peeled and chopped
    • 1 tablespoon medium curry paste or powder
    • 350ml fish or chicken stock

    1. Coat a hot frying pan with a little oil and fry the garlic, ginger and onion until onion has wilted. Season with curry paste or powder, and fry for a further minute or two.
    2. Chop half of the red capsicum finely. Add to the frying pan along with the tomatoes, and cook until tomatoes have totally broken down. Stir in the stock and creamed coconut and return to a boil. Taste and adjust seasoning if required and continue to simmer until sauce is slightly thickened.
    3. Chop the remaining onion into large chunks and chop the second half of the red capsicum into strips. Fry these very briefly in a separate frypan (1-2 minutes only).
    4. Add the onion mix to the main frypan and bring to the boil again. Turn off heat immediately and add the prawns.
    5. Serve over rice and garnish with chopped fresh coriander.

    Great dish! Accidentally used coconut milk instead of cream and still went amazingly. I used green curry paste. I found that this amount really only served two or three if the portions were small.  -  24 Apr 2014


    Something else. - I put a bit less stock (250-300), the curry is thicker and tastes just as good - Dried chilli with the pepper and tomatoes - Slightly less ginger  -  09 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    A very, very good curry, very tasty and easy to make, not to mention pretty cheap.  -  09 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
