Ingredients

  • 1 Teaspoon sunflower oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Thai green curry paste
  • 2/3 Cups vegetable stock, fresh or made from 1/4 stock cube
  • Half of one 14-ounce can light coconut milk, stirred
  • 1 red bell pepper, deseeded and cut into strips
  • 2/3 Cups frozen peas
  • 1 spring onion (scallion), trimmed and shredded
  • 5 1/2 Ounces pak choi, roughly chopped
  • 8 Ounces raw king prawns (king shrimp)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 basil leaf, shredded
  • 1 small handful of coriander (or cilantro) leaves, roughly chopped

Directions

Warm the oil in a wide saucepan and add the curry paste. Stir-fry for 1 minute before adding the stock and coconut milk. Simmer the mixture for 2 minutes, then add the bell pepper, peas, and spring onions and simmer for another 5 minutes, or until the peas are tender. Add the pak choi and prawns and cook for 2 minutes or until the prawns turn pink. Finally, stir in the lime juice, basil, and coriander, and serve immediately

Prawn Shopping Tip

Seafood shopping is quite easy in the general sense. Rule of thumb: if it smells fishy, don't buy. Fresh seafood should smell mild and more like the ocean and sea water rather than fish.
