Here’s a meal that Hub and I are rather addicted to at the moment – Prawn and Coconut Laksa. It has all the right ‘ingredients’:
- very tasy
What’s not to like?
I took this photo of all the actual ingredients tonight before getting stuck in. But so eager was I to get on with it, that I left out two key things: garlic and coconut oil.
They are included in this photo showing everything chopped up and ready to go.
Apart from obviously doubling up the recipe for two people, I have made a couple of other variations, as one does:
- I include a leek for extra bulk, flavour and general oomph. Not authentic, I am sure, but it works;
- I don’t add as much stock as stated in the recipe because it makes things too liquid – we find it nicer to have a slightly thicker sauce;
- I use two red chillies, but that’s just our taste. The coconut milk makes sure that all the flavours combine together in a beautifully mellow way;
- I use cooked prawns for speed.
Apart from that, I follow the recipe to the letter!!
This is not the prettiest dish to photograph, but I can assure you it smells and tastes delicious. Why not give it a try? 😀
