This is one of Emeril's recipes however, I've cut a corner or two by using purchased red curry, which you should add according to taste. NOTE: Here's RZ suggested substiution for Fish Sauce: 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce = 1 tbsp fish sauce; 1 tbsp soy sauce = 1 tbsp fish sauce

Really good - better than most thai restaurants. I used 3 tbs curry paste, 1 and a half can coconut milk and added lemongrass and 3 tsp peanut butter. So delicious - thank you!

This is an easy to prepare, flavorful curry. I cut corners by buying carrots already shredded and prepared red curry paste. I used more Thai basil than indicated as I was trying to use it up from my garden, as well as extra cilantro. We served over jasmine rice prepared in my rice cooker. This was enjoyed. Thanks!
