This curry was so delicious! I made it for my family and they loved it. A few things I'd say if you wanted to give this recipe a try is probably to use a lot more coconut milk, I used around half a tin and it wasn't enough for the three of us. Also, don't stick to the recipes measurements and instead taste it along the way to see if it needs more lemon or soy sauce or anything else. :)

Just made this for a family of four. I used 4 shallots, 2-3 tbsp green Thai curry paste, 300g fresh king prawns, a tin of coconut milk and added a sliced red pepper. Tasted delicious! Just spicy enough for the adults but too spicy for the kids, although they loved the taste.

The ingredients list mentions coconut milk whereas the recipe text specifies coconut cream - I had only the milk at hand so I added more milk instead of the 50ml water called for. I also threw in a few Thai basil leaves along with the coriander - added a nice punch.

This was nice and, importantly, very quick to make. I used a bit too much Thai green curry paste (2tbsp for 2 - probably depends on which one you use) but still very tasty. Next time, I think I might add a couple of other vegetables. The coriander at the end really made the difference
