1/3 Photos of Green Curry With Shrimp and Fish (Kaeng Khiao)
An easy curry that you can adjust the hotness level by adding hot peppers to taste. I use Vietnam Basa catfish but you can use any firm whitefish. If you cannot find galangal (Thai ginger) regular ginger can be used. Modified from a recipe I found on a Thailand Tourism website.
