Okay, so I am supposed to lower my cholesterol but the prawns were on special!!! Seriously, if they were expensive, I would have walked past and given them a miss. So I ended up buying some Crystal Bay prawns and that nite I cooked Thai pineapple prawns. This is such an easy classic Thai dish. I used a tin of pineapple chunks. I can't seemed to find any fresh sweet pineapple from Queensland at the moment. Hopefully they will be back in droves soon.
2 tablesppon of Thai red curry
2 red chillies
1/2 kilo of prawns peeled, with tail intact.
Mint or basil leaves for garnish.
I can of pineapple chunk pieces
I tablespoon of fish sauce
Coconut milk ( optional) I opt out, I wanted mine fiery!
- Add curry paste to hot oil in wok
- Throw in the prawns
- Stir fry it
- Add a can of pineapple in juices, no need for sugar if in juices.
- Squirt fish sauce in
- Let it cook, and voila, there you have it! Garnish with Mint or basil leaves.
