Grilled Red Curry Prawns

Grilled Red Curry Prawns
My daughter just love prawns very much and can finish up her plate without any feeding or running after her begging to finish up. Sometime she nearly make me cry.No doubt about it she simply loves prawns. Grilling prawns with the fragrance of Thai is simply delicious!!!no doubt in that.If you don't agree just try out this grilled prawns and let me know...

I often prepare Thai infused recipes when I was in Dallas as I could get all the ingredients needed fresh from the Asian store. It's quite expensive at the restaurant.Thai food is a winner at any dinner party. The fragrant aromas of exotic spices and unusual flavor combinations make this style of food an exciting variation for families like mine where hubby like taste food from over the world at their dinner table.This paste is fragrant and sumptuous, and can be made anywhere from mild to red-hot, depending on how much spice you prefer.Made with authentic ingredients like lemongrass, galangal and garlic, balanced with the fiery heat of Thai red chiles and the creamy richness of coconut milk, it’s ready to use as a simmering sauce for poultry, meat, seafood, vegetables, tofu or as a sauce for noodles. The paste complements the flavors of all kind of meat and seafood perfectly. Just image the subtle blend of hot, salty, sweet and sour flavors to get the taste buds tingling.
