Shrimp Thai Green Curry

Being back to reality is hard. Which is silly because I really like my reality. But going back to day-to-day activities seem so tedious when every day last week was started out on the beach with a cocktail in hand. Ew, listen to me. Stop complaining, Juli. You’re the worst.

You know what isn’t the worst? This curry. If you haven’t been on my blog very much, I’ll fill you in on a little tidbit about me: I LOVE curry. Not just kind of or yeahcurryiscool kind of love. No. I want it for my last meal. But the thing is, not all curry reigns the same. Is that how the saying goes? Whatever. There are all sorts of restaurants out there that have curry (many of which are thickened with flour…WTF?!) and some that just aren’t properly flavored. I’ve never been to Thailand so I can’t speak from experience, but I’ve eaten Tom Kha Gai at Departure in Portland and chowed down on duck red curry at Lotus of Siam in Vegas and both absolutely blew me away and just ignited my love for curry even more. Even though I’ve made curry in the past, it just never was exactly what I wanted it to be…until now. This curry has so much flavor, so much depth, and so much absolute perfection. I’m serious, I love this curry so freaking much and wish I could eat it every day. It’s my birthday on Friday and I have dinner planned at a Thai restaurant already. All I’ve asked Brian for months now is to take me to curry for my birthday. But he’s also taking me for gluten free pancakes at Snooze for breakfast. Fudge, I love that man so much! He knows the key to my heart!

I’m about to turn 28 years old this year and I’m pumped about it! 27 was such a great year with being engaged, getting married, releasing my third cookbook and buying our first home! So much cool stuff happened and I don’t want that to end. I asked one of my friends the other day what he would have done if he wouldn’t have had kids right away when he got married. And he said travel. So that’s what we have planned. We want to landscape our backyard (since we still have a whole in the cement after our sewer line fiasco and most of our grass is just dirt now) so we can get a hot tub at some point and enjoy winter more. But then we are ready to travel! First, I think we are going to hit up the Keys. Then Costa Rica since I loved it so much and want my favorite guy to experience it too. Have you ever been to the Keys? Any recommendations? What’s the difference between the Keys & Key West? Let’s start planning this vacation together!!

PaleOMG Shrimp Green Curry


Shrimp Thai Green Curry

  • Yield: 3-4 1x



For the marinade

  • 1 pound shrimp, deveined and peeled
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • pinch of salt

For the curry

  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 orange bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons ghee
  • 2 tablespoons green curry paste
  • 2 (14 ounce) cans full fat coconut milk
  • 2 heaping tablespoons almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • juice of 2 limes (about 45 tablespoons)
  • 56 lime leaves, rolled between your fingers to release the fragrance
  • 1 lemon grass stalk, cut in half lengthwise
  • 2 red jalapeno peppers, thinly sliced (remove seeds for less spice)
  • 3 large basil leaves, thinly sliced
  • handful of cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup cashews, roughly chopped


  1. Place shrimp, lime juice, ginger, red pepper flakes and fresh salt in a bow, mix and set aside.
  2. Slice pepper, onion, and garlic while the shrimp marinates. Place 2 tablespoons of ghee in a large high rimmed pan. Once hot, add all the veggies to the pan and cook for 6-7 minutes, until onion is translucent and peppers are soft. Remove from pan and set aside.
  3. Add 1 more tablespoon of ghee to the pan. Once hot, place shrimp in pan to cook on each side for 1-2 minutes, then remove and set aside. (I did this in 2 batches to make sure the shrimp got a perfect color and crust on it, making sure the temperature of the pan doesn’t drop too much).
  4. Once shrimp has been removed, add green curry paste and whisk around. After about 30 seconds of whisking, add coconut milk, almond butter, honey, fish sauce, ginger, lime juice, kaffir lime leaves and lemongrass. Whisk together to combine. Let simmer for 5 minutes then add the pepper/onion mixture back to the pan along with thinly sliced red jalapeños. Simmer for another 5 minutes. When there are 2 minutes left, add in shrimp to heat through. Once it’s done cooking, add basil, cilantro, and cashews.
  5. Before serving, removing lime leaves and lemon grass!
  6. Garnish with extra cilantro!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. This looks delicious!! I just started following your blog. Congrats on the wedding and the marriage. I agree with your friend. Definitely travel!! Kids are forever. We did not mean to get pregnant 6 months after our wedding (Whoops!) but she’s the best thing ever and I can’t imagine my life with out her sassy self (she’s 3 now). With that being said, just know that life after kids does exist. We’ve managed to take a trip every year-just the two of us, all stateside. You just need a good support system, and people willing to watch your offspring. It helps if they’re cute too 🙂

    1. that’s always good to hear because almost all of my close friends have shown otherwise. they rarely leave their child and when they do, they are freaking out about it.

      1. Umm no. We spent NYE in Times Square, ventured out to Boston for a Cubs/Red Sox game, Nashville etc. You have to take time as a couple to do stuff. We just had our second daughter this past November and we’re leaving her overnight with my mom for the first time this weekend to head down to Chicago (we live in Milwaukee). At first I was like, “Waah I’m going to miss her so much!” But then I was like, “I can sleep/eat/drink uninterrupted!!” LOL! My in-laws and my mom help us out with the longer babysitting tasks and we found a babysitter that my cousin used for her kids on nights we just need to be “us” outside our parental duties. We’re two and through. I have a very strong belief that kids should never outnumber the parents.

    2. Hello!

      This recipe sounds amazing, but may I ask: how many calories would this be? I’m very conscious about how much I’m taking in every day and would quite like to know the calories for recipes I might want to use, as well as the sodium, sugar, etc. Would it be alright if you had calculated these for your recipes and listed them with each one? -Katya

  2. Hey Juli – I’ve been a reader for a long time (which is weird because I am not paleo nor have I ever done crossfit). I’ve also never commented, BUT I wanted to point out some funny coincidences I noticed this week. 1) Your new last name is v similar to my last name (saw yours on Snap, mine is Rauth) 2) We have the same birthday 3) I’m from CO originally, but currently live in Philly and for my birthday I’m flying home and the first thing I’m doing is eating pancakes at Snooze

    Anyway, just wanted to point that out because I love a good camaraderie. Congrats on the wedding/marriage and happy birthday!!

    1. Rachel are you me?? I too live in Philly and share a birthday with you and Juli! Earth Day birthdays unite!

      Juli — Congrats on your marriage and amazing wedding !! I have been a reader since 2012 and have never commented but reading your blog every day and seeing all the wonderful things going on in your life feels like watching a friend find happiness! Best of luck and happy birthday!

      P.S. Your blender bottle mayo with the immersion blender was life changing a few years ago 🙂

  3. I have been to Key West twice and loved it both times. It is much more developed with amazing restaurants – Loui’s backyard. There is a difference. Fly into Miami and do the drive down if there are other keys you want to stop in.

  4. Am I missing when you add the lime leaves and lemon grass? I see when you take them out, but when do you put them in? With the jalapenos? Thanks!

  5. I LOVE curry too and a lot of my friends won’t eat it because they are afraid it will be too spicy! I try to tell them to stop with the pad thai and just try a low heat curry!! The Keys is the group of all of the keys….Key West is the southern most key in The Keys. Key West is most touristy and party your face off-everyone should go there for a couple nights for sure. Other keys have different things to offer. Some have amazing resorts, great fishing, yachting, etc. I would do an airbnb or vrbo in the Keys for sure! There are some amazing privately owned homes there that you can rent. Damnit now I want curry for lunch.

  6. I totally agree with Emily on the airbnb rental idea! While there are some amazing resorts and hotels on some of the other Keys, Key West has a very eclectic vibe with some totally amazing vacation rentals (one of the better BNBs being Tropical Inn, right on Duval).
    I live in south Florida so we take weekend trips there quite regularly. Food is amazing, fun shops, great beaches and plenty of sights to behold. My extended family travels to Marathon and Islamorada every summer. They are big into boating/fishing and scuba diving. The “Keys” in general are amazing, beautiful water and fantastic weather. . .as long as you don’t plan on traveling during the height of hurricane season :).
    If you want to recreate that reception of yours and party your face off again, I would strongly recommend Key West. It is very similar to New Orleans, but surrounded by water (more reasons for cute swimsuits, ps, thank you for posting links – I may or may not have bought a couple of them already!!) Hope some of this helps. Congrats on your wedding, and happy traveling!!

  7. Everyone we know just popped out a kid and we’re planning an epic 2 week trip to Hawaii! We did Italy last year and a bunch of our friends were super jealous. I’m all about that travel life, do it up!

  8. Ok, so we did a destination wedding last year in Clearwater, FL, and did our honeymoon in Key West. It was great (and we made it SUPER CHEAP by staying in a great airbnb and making our own breakfast every day!) but overall Key West wasn’t what we thought it was. There were a ton of drunk adults there (50+). We went in May and the weather was gorgeous. Beaches there suck – so plan to do other things besides just sitting on the beach. My hubs is in the military so we were able to get onto the military beaches which were wayyyyyyy better than the public beaches – even then we only went to the beach like twice. Duval street is fun if you want to party your face off – (which we can appreciate – but we don’t like to be hungover all the time). There are roosters everywhere.

    If you’re looking for a great dessert restaurant, try Better Than Sex. Idk if they have gluten free stuff – but everything has crazy innuendo names – we laughed our asses off. And the food was INCREDIBLE!! 🙂

    Also this gym is the coolest – Old Town Fitness!! If you’re like me and like that garage gym feel – it’s freaking awesome. The people there are so friendly – and there’s this super cool dog that welcomes you as you walk in! They gave us a deal when we said we were working out on our honeymoon/just visiting for a week. Just so you know – it’s old and rough on the inside – like an old school bodybuilding gym. No working bikes or anything like that. We also tried to go to Crossfit Key West. FYI- it’s right next door to a pole dancing studio.

    Also this curry looks amazing.

  9. Are the kaffir lime leaves you used fresh or dried? Just wondering because I’ve only bought dried but would love to try fresh if they’re not too hard to find. Also, congrats on your wedding!

  10. In reference to they Keys, it really depends on the type of vacation you want to have. If you’re looking for lounging and relaxing, I suggest the rest of the keys. If you’re looking for a party. party, party all night long, then Key West is the BOMB! You definitely cannot go to the Florida Keys without at least a day trip-turned-over-night trip doing the Duval crawl. There’s a lot to see throughout the Keys and there are some iconic restaurants throughout your trek to Key West. .. Don’t expect much in the way of beautiful white sand beaches though. The snorkeling will be awesome, and you may want to look into a trip to the Dry Tortugas while you’re down there. I haven’t done it but my mother and sister have and they still talk about how beautiful the water is and how epic the snorkeling was. Hope that helps!

  11. Happy early birthday! Mine is tomorrow and I’m turning 28 too! And also asking my husband to take me to snooze for my bday tomorrow 🙂

  12. Hey Juli, love your blog and look forward to your posts every morning!!! I moved from the midwest and now live north (about five hours) of the Keys in Vero Beach. We have stopped in Key Largo and stayed in Islamorada several times. Robbie’s in Islamorada is a must for breakfast but not sure on gluten free options! If you decide to fly into Key West just be sure to go to some of the local places that are off of Duval street. When we first went it was a day trip, very touristy and HOTTT/HUMID as ballz so I would recommend going between October-Aprilish because people watching (they have great parades), outdoor bars, and walking around is the best part! Definitely check out Kino Sandal company, they make unique super cheap leather sandals while you wait that last forever. The beaches are a little disappointing, NOTHING compared to Jamaica haha.

  13. Travel, travel, travel! I got married when I was 27 and we started having kids when I was 30. We traveled a lot and it was totally awesome!!! Having kids is totally awesome too though, they bring you more joy than you ever thought could be possible!!

  14. This looks awesome!!! So excited to make it. How much onion goes into the recipe? I didn’t see it on the ingredients but it shows up in the instructions.

  15. The Keys are beautiful! The crazy thing is that everyone thinks Key West is where it’s at but that’s not even the most beautiful island (just the most popular)! If you fly into Miami and rent a car you’ll have the most beautiful drive of your life as you head down! So many cute bed and breakfasts. And gorgeous sunset cruises. Big Pine Key is gorgeous and close to Key West. And you can’t miss a good Duval Crawl and Mallory Square. You guys will love it as newlyweds!

  16. Key west is amazing. Went there on a Disney cruise!.. I hear there is a good bed and breakfast not sure which island but it’s called The Southernmost Point.. I would love to go back… Key west was a big bar place!

  17. OK, this curry is effing amazing. I live in Mexico and there was no green curry paste at the only store in town that has that kind of stuff, but just so you know – it is fabulous with red curry paste. I noticed that onions got left off the ingredient list as I was making this, so I halved mine and sliced it. Don’ know if you were intending it to be that way, but it worked great. I also doubled the shrimp because my husband and son routinely eat every freaking bit of whatever I make, and dishes that I thought would get everybody through lunch the next day are left as only dregs after dinner. Even with doing that, there’s enough for only one lunch (it will probably not be mine).

    Thanks for another amazing recipe, and congrats on your beautiful wedding! You looked amazing and your dress was gorgeous!!!

  18. Hi, Juli – I’m making this right now and noticed that there are multiple steps that refer to onion, but there is no onion listed in the ingredients. Should there be? Thanks!

  19. I think you said it was awkward when an adult calls their mom ‘mommy’ – but you just asked the difference between the Keys and Key West. So I always kinda chuckle to myself because you’re just pretend adulting too. No shade. Me and my 9-year-old are headed to Japan next week. We’ve traveled throughout Spain, Italy, Croatia, Finland, France, DR, Aruba, Grand Turk, and road tripped through about 17 U.S. states. Definitely not an advertisement to have kids, but I don’t think life stops when you do.

  20. Next time you are in Dallas definitely go to malai kitchen for curry. It is insane. They even make their own coconut milk. Their green curry is the best I’ve ever had but the yellow is awesome too. You just can’t go wrong. Ok, now I’m hungry.

  21. Thailand is a great place to go on vacation, and the food is even better there than anything you can get here. SO much curry, and SO many different varieties!

  22. Florida Keys! One of my favorite places to vacation!! If you want to party all week Key West is the place to be. If you’re looking for more beaches, snorkeling, kayaking… then go elsewhere. I really like the Marathon area. We usually fly into Ft. Lauderdale or Miami and drive down. Helpful tip: DO NOT rent from firefly car rental. It will be way cheaper but any savings will not be worth it by the amount of frustration you deal with having to deal with that company. Last time we were there we took a sea plane to the Dry Tortugas. GO THERE. It’s so amazing. The sea plane was awesome because you didn’t have to spend all day on a boat getting there. Came with a price tag though. Here are some pics if you want to check them out 🙂

  23. The only curry experience I have was the worst: Cambell’s Go Soup curry… LOL worst mistake of my life. Now I’m so scared to try curry at our actual thai restaurant because I’m scared I’ll hate it… What’s your favorite or what do you recommend for a starter like myself?

    PS Congrats on EVERYTHING. We had a sewer line replacement not 2 years after we bought our first house, so it’s basically a second car payment… not fun, sorry you have to deal with that!

  24. Ooh, that looks amazing! My husband is a huge curry fan, I am merely an affectionado. But I would love to attempt this recipe this weekend.

    I love to travel! I traveled quite a bit before kids, but never anywhere super exotic. I still want to make it to a palm-tree-white-sand-beach kind of locale one of these days. Bucket list!

  25. Hey Julie!

    Love your blog, contrats on getting married! I have been to the keys a few times it is def a great place to see if you haven’t been. The keys are a bunch of islands that were connected by bridges and roads during the FDR public works era. FDR was like, hey no one has jobs so let’s build a big ass 180 mile bridge out to Key West! (There is a military base on Key West so it wasn’t completely irrational) You can fly directly to key west but I’d reccomend flying to Miami and renting a car and driving the highway to key west, its gorge, seriously the best views of the ocean (plus the flight to key west is expensive). You can stop at the island keys along the way. Key largo is first (kind of dumpy) and there are a few others along the way. Fun fact about key west is that they are extremely lax about nudity and people sometimes go to bars in the nude. There is no open container law so you can drink everywhere. Also there are chickens everywhere randomly. I’d plan to drive but spend most of your time in Key West.

    My boyfriend and I have a trip planned to Austin for this weekend which I know you have been to a few times and I used your blog to pick good food spots! Our next big trip is to Greece. We are going to Athens, Santorini, and Mykonos. After that I am sure we will pick our next spot so maybe I’ll get some inspiration from you and check out Costa Rica! Have fun.

  26. G’day mate! (Can you see where this is going??) Here’s a brilliant idea – travel to Australia before you have kids!! Long flight that you don’t want to do with kids so go now and sooo pretty. It’s the best and you can wear togs (bikinis) all day long! Just google image Byron Bay (super healthy, surf and hippie town), try saying no after taking a peek!!
    Congratulations on your wedding!!

  27. GIRL. I want curry for every meal of the day. TOP THAT. 😉 This green curry looks absolutely amazing and I love that it has shrimp and ALMOND BUTTER–whuuuuut??

  28. Hey Juli!

    First, congrats on the wedding! I loved reading your blog about the wedding, my dream is also a destination wedding. Simply put, I just don’t want to mess with planning and paying for all that crap. I just want to go away and have a big ol’ party with the people I love most. I always thought I’d do Mexico (living in Texas, it’s just so close) but maybe I’ll consider some place like Jamaica now 🙂

    Second, love your blog, cookbooks, snapchats etc. That’s pretty much all I have to say about that. You’re the greatest! I am also utterly obsessed with curry, especially green curry – my last meal would be green curry & sour cream enchiladas (weird, yeah). So, I feel ya.

    Last, I LOVE KEY WEST. It is one of my favorite places to visit in the states. I’m not sure if you’ve ever been to New Orleans, but I think of it as a clean & tropical NOLA. Lots of great food & live music. It’s just so much fun and so relaxed. I have driven Key West -> Miami, so through all the keys, however, it was during a hurricane so I can’t really vouch for the other islands. However, my dream is to fly into Miami, rent a convertible and travel through the keys making a few stops (especially after watching Bloodline), ending with a few days in Key West. All you need in Key West is a bicycle (or moped, but let’s be honest – bikes are way cooler) and some flip flops and you’re set. Highly recommend, and when you start planning I can let you know some of my favorite spots 🙂

  29. Do you use Thai Kitchen curry and fish sauce?

    ……my husband and I are coming up on our fourth anniversary as DINKs (double income no kids) and still traveling. Enjoy this time in life, you’re only 28! Happy Birthday

  30. Hi Juli, like Rachel I’m also not paleo nor have I ever done crossfit, but I have been following your blog for some time now. I’ve never posted a comment, but I have reached out to you via email. This recipe is so ridiculously life changing, I HAD TO leave a comment. I’ve decided that this, along with your Creamy Cauliflower Shrimp Chowder, would be chosen as part of my final meal. I’ve been waiting for this since you put it on Snapchat. Thank you!!!!

  31. Ok woman, I never reply on anything but you mentioned two of my all time favorite things- Tom Gha Kai and the Keys, so I just had to!
    Def making this for dinner tomorrow night!
    Thennnn, we go to the keys, Islamorada actually every June, every year. It is so fabulous!! We rent a house on the beach and just live it up on margaritas and good food:)
    Stay at the Cheeca if you want a hotel, and ooohhh, so many places to eat good!! Chef Micheals is a must, and Pierre’s for food and/or the monthly full moon party is fabulous. The beach and the sunset is truly amazing (many a fashion shoot has been done there aka Spors Illustrated) annnd I found a really cool box to drop in on just up the street. After a few relaxing days there, drive down to Key West for some good partays! Come in June then we can meet for cocktails:)

  32. Hi Juli,
    This Thai food really hits me !!!
    I spent about 2 hours to give this recipe a shot with my wife. Much more than 45 mins, but totally worth it! We love it so much! The shrimp is very amazing. I will try the Indian Butter Chicken next week 🙂
    Thanks for the recipe!

  33. Hi Juli,

    Love your blog and how candid you are in general 🙂

    Hubby and I absolutely love Thailand.. Phuket to be specific. We went there together for the first time in 2010 and have gone back there every year since 2012. We are leaving again in two weeks time! SUUUUUUUUUUUUPER EXCITED!! We’re South Africans, so travelling is expensive in general. Thailand is one of the more affordable destinations to visit.

    I apologise if this sounds snobbish, but Thai curry isn’t REAL THAI CURRY unless you are sitting at a little beach side restaurant in Kata Beach, with a few wannabe Thai vocal artists singing the same songs as the previous night, scooters buzzing past and scantily clad pasty white Europeans strolling by…. with beads of sweat breaking out on your forehead and lip due to a combination of the humid night air and the incredibly delicious green shrimp curry……. 😉

    You guys should go there…!

    P.S. Congrats!! Wishing you all the best for your life with your special man 🙂

        1. thanks so much for letting me know, Lindsey! I hate no idea! that ingredient name has been changed to just lime leaves! And lauren, next time educate instead of just leaving a comment that doesn’t make sense to someone who obviously has no idea about that term and is just going off of what the ingredient is listed as in the store. education is powerful so spread the knowledge.

  34. I love, love, love curry but have never made a recipe at home that came anywhere near what I get in a restaurant.. until last night. Thanks for such an awesome recipe!!!! I’m in love!

  35. Juli! I love this recipie! I have made it twice already and I cannot stop eating it! Thank you so much!

  36. So glad I chose this for my first recipe to make from your site because O.M.G. it was so freaking good. I went to two different stores and still couldn’t find the lime leaves but even then it was still delicious!

    1. sometimes with cauliflower rice (or i eat white rice so sometimes i eat it with that) or just by itself! whatever your preference is!

  37. I made this last night for me and my boyfriend. We both loved it!! I was a bit hesitant, thinking it would be extremely spicy, but it was awesome. We left out the lime leaves, I couldn’t find them anywhere, and still tasted great! We had it over brown rice. Next time I may use a bit less ghee, as it seemed to separate a bit from the rest- but regardless, most definetly making it again. Thanks for sharing, Juli!

  38. Made this last night for my husband and it was a huge hit. It was phenomenal and so different than anything I’ve ever made before.

  39. Delicious; my husband liked it better than a similar restaurant dish he had ordered recently!

  40. Hi Juli,

    Is the almond butter used mostly as a thickening agent? Can ground almonds be used instead? (we use that in some of the Indian recipes we make).
    Thanks for the recipe. Can’t wait to try it!

  41. Good lord, woman! That looks delicious!
    My second home (figuratively, for now) is in the Keys. I have so many recommendations that I’ll have to email you. Key West is a different animal than the rest of the keys, in some ways, but the same in others.
    Wonderous place that I hope to call home someday.

    So much amazing food in Key West!!!!

  42. I just made this with chicken after seeing your post this week and I am in LOVE. The best Thai I have had in so long! Definitely better than many restaurants I have been to. So excited to eat it again tomorrow! Thank you Juli – this is going to be a keeper for me!

  43. Wow. Period. You’ve totally nailed this curry! I’ve tried SO MANY recipes and none have had that same “restaurant taste” I’ve been looking for. THANK YOU!! ????????

  44. This was SO good. This is the best homemade curry recipe I’ve ever come across, and it rivals restaurants. I did make a few edits, based on preference – used chicken instead of shrimp, used green jalapenos, and couldn’t find any lime leaves so I zested 1 lime. I think the lime zest achieved what was needed! Skipped cilantro because I forgot it. It was so so yummy. Definitely putting it in the rotation. Served with Whole Foods Cauliflower Rice (frozen – heat up in the microwave in less than 5 minutes, so easy).

  45. I am a guy and love to cook. My wife cooks on most days, but I like to jump in there every now and then, when she lets me (when time is not of the essence). Normally, it is foods that are tried and true, mostly recipes I have written down while watching my mom cook. But every now and then, I like to amaze the wife with a palate sensation. And this Thai green curry shrimp was so amazing, my wife loved it so much, kept saying it was the best Thai green curry she ever had and later that night, snuggled into me even more than she normally does in bed cause she was so happy with life. Thanks for an outstandingly delicious recipe!! It was easy to make and burst with so much flavor, it was hard to stop eating.

  46. Where would you rate this on a Spicy Scale? My local “decent” Thai place uses a scale of No Spice, 1, 2, or 3. I like a kick to my curry but not “I’m sweating and my tastebuds are numb” kind of hot. So many curry recipes I’ve tried really fall flat.

    Also, if I’d like to kick it up a notch, what do you recommend?

    I read EVERY comment to see if I could find suggestions…I swear!

    Thanks, lady!

    1. ps…my go-to favorite curry dish is Panang Curry. I believe this is traditionally made with red curry…? I’ve never made it at home. Only googled recipes.
