This is my favorite curry recipe that I have found on The flavor and texture were delicious. I will definitely make again. <br/>I did not use fish sauce as that just sounds gross. I added a full tablespoon of red curry paste as we like it spicy. I skipped the salt, also the peanuts due to husband's allergies. The cilantro and lime juice added a good bit of flavor. Thanks for the excellent recipe, Roosie!!
