One of our favorite regular dishes. This authentic Thai red curry has an exotic flavor. It is probably going to be very spicy for most people.

DH and I made this seafood curry for dinner last night as I was looking to use up a bag of mixed seafood that I bought at Trader Joe's. We both thought the curry was excellent, with a nice balance of sweet and spicy. I halved the amount of curry paste to 2 oz and I used coconut cream, as that is what I had on hand (though next time I will use coconut milk). All other ingredient proportions we kept the same. I'm copying the recipe down as we would have it again. We served it over jasmine rice. Thanks for a nice dinner.
