I’ve said it before: I’m a whimp when it comes to spicy hot. Maybe I have some defective taste buds or something. Whatever it is, hot just doesn’t do it for me. I think it takes over the dish and covers up everything else. Most often, if a recipe calls for jalapeno or chipotle or cayenne, I will either leave it out or cut it in half. Which is what a did a couple of weeks ago when I made a dish with red curry paste. Well, with that one, I barely noticed any heat. So I thought to myself, self, maybe red curry paste isn’t one of those hot things that I need to be concerned about. Wrong. I used the full amount with the halibut, a mere teaspoon, and it was more than I would have liked, to say the least. I was a little surprised, especially due to the fact that while making the broth it smelled more like coconut than curry.
All in all, this was very good. I’m just glad I only have one day of leftovers. I do love the beautiful colors.
Wow. I was so wrapped up in the curry that I forgot to mention that this is from Ellie Krieger and The Food You Crave.
Eat Well and Savor.
