I cheated, and you know what? It was worth it. I usually start literally from scratch with my recipes (as you would know!) but I just couldn't bring myself to work out the green curry recipe that I still haven't done, starting with a curry powder and going from there...so I used the very delicious (but quite salty) Ayam brand Green Curry Paste which is gluten free as an added bonus. A new fave in my fridge...just sayin'. So don't feel bad, whip this amazing curry in no time with a little help from our friends at Ayam...and by the way, I always, always, always use their coconut cream/milk products as they are the best, with no additives. Plug over...(and they don't pay me at all...for the skeptics amongst you!)
Anyhoo, I digress, you are going to love this one. I suppose a more traditional Thai curry would have pea eggplant, but these are not easy to find in my neighborhood, and so they didn't make the cut! But if you can find them, by all means, toss them in with the coconut gravy step as they need a little longer cooking time than the fish. Enjoy.
