Author Notes

Green curry paste is typically not vegetarian as there is either shrimp or anchovy paste in it. I used Madhur Jafferey’s green curry paste recipe as a guideline and changed up a few ingredients based on what I couldn’t find at my grocery store. I replaced kaffir lime zest with a normal lime and birds eye chilis with Serranos.

The dish is sweet, spicy, coconut-y and delicious! It takes a little over 30 minutes to make and in my book that’s a keeper. Try it for yourself! —Milk and Cardamom
