Seafood Curry

Updated: May 8, 2023

Craving for something with a bit of spice? This is a special recipe was inspired by my Bà Nội's (Vietnamese term for grandmother) chicken curry. For this dish, I have replaced the chicken with scallops, shrimp, and striped bass to my personal liking. What I love about this dish is that it’s very aromatic from the lemon grass, Thai basil, and other ingredients!



Step 1: Preparation

  1. Cut your mushroom into slices and put them in a bowl.

  2. For the lemongrass stalks, wash the stalks and remove the outer layer.

  3. Cut the stalks into roughly two-inch slices diagonally.

  4. Crush the lemongrass with the back of your knife or a mallet (this will help release the aromatics).

  5. Wash your seafood with a tsp of cooking wine and water to rinse out the fishy flavor.

  6. Cut the fish into equally thin slices.

Step 2: Curry

  1. In a big pot, set the heat on medium.

  2. Add 2 tbsp of oil and your red curry paste and yellow curry powder.

  3. Use a wooden spoon and mix that around and add your coconut milk.

  4. Stir both until well combined and add your chicken broth.

  5. While stirring, add your lemongrass, sugar, and fish sauce.

Step 3: Seafood

  1. Once the curry starts to heat up and lightly boil, add your fish first because it has a loner cooking time.

  2. After a minute or two, add your shrimp.

  3. After 2 minutes, add the scallops.

  4. Cover the pot with a lid and let the seafood cook for about 8-10 minutes before adding the mushrooms.

Step 4: Finale

  1. To let the mushrooms cook, place the lid back on and wait for another 4-5 minutes.

  2. Open the lid and stir the curry. If the mushrooms need more time put the lid back on and give it an additional 3 minutes.

  3. If your mushrooms are ready, add your Thai basil and stir the curry for a couple times before removing the pot from the stove.
