Thai Red Prawn Curry Using XXL Prawns from

When you love seafood, you also love thai cuisine and when you start loving thai food, you instinctively start loving seafood. Probably that’s the reason Thai Red Curry And Thai Green Curry with Prawns or Fish are one of the Worlds most loved food.  Its an excellent dish that leaves your taste buds tickling and best accompanied with steam rice.
That’s what I decided to make to do a taste test of a packet of XXL prawns I received from . Usually I don’t do product review unless I am really convinced . However, when the door bell rang and the delivery guy handed me this large packet of Frozen XXL Prawns, I was quite overwhelmed. The prawns are unbelievably large in size and you can see it very clearly from one side of packet. Now, let me tell you something about most frozen seafood. You might get trapped in their scheme of small, medium, large and XXL large Prawns. Most frozen packet are not transparent and you cant actually judge the size from outside. Even though you buy the Jumbo Tiger Prawn, when you open the packet and defrost it, you might end up disappointed.  

But not this time. I got exactly what i was promised. They were XL prawns, real large size prawns which didn’t reduce much in size even after cooking. The softness was still intact and the prawns were juicy and succulent when cooked in curry. 

I used ready to use Thai Red Curry Paste and Green Curry Paste which made my life even simpler . You can make your own paste at home too.

Thai Red Curry Paste 2 tbsp
Coconut Thick Cream 1 cup
