INDONESIAN SEAFOOD CURRY

Indonesian-Seafood-Curry

I know it seems I’m on a bit of a curry bender at the moment. That’s probably true. For me it ticks all the boxes. Fast. Cheap. Easy. Healthy. Yummy. Winner!

That being said, I wanted to branch out from variations on an indian theme (like this one and this one).

Enter this Indonesian Seafood curry! 🙂

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients:

  • Butter or oil (for pan)
  • 1kg Marinara mix (mixed seafood)
  • 1 medium sweet potato, small cubes
  • 1 Head of broccoli, chopped
  • 1 large zucchini, chopped
  • 1 Bunch of bok choi, chopped
  • Indonesian Spice Mix*
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 stick of lemon grass, chopped

*This Indonesian spice mix is my own concoction. It contains:

  • 1/2 Tbsp sambal oelek (indonesian style red chilli paste)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp ABC spread (almond, brazil nut, cashew)
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp ground harissa (Middle Eastern spice)

Method:

  • Butter, applied to pan liberally
  • From here on out you are stirring regularly
  • Add sweet potato cubes, stir for 5 minutes
  • Add garlic
  • Add lemongrass
  • Add broccoli
  • Add zucchini
  • Add bok choi
  • Stir, stir, stir!
  • Add spices in order above
  • Simmer for 5 minutes
  • Kick ass!

Obviously, to make this vegetarian you can just remove the seafood, or exchange it for tofu, etc.
So give this Indonesian seafood curry (or variation) a try and let us know how you got on in the comments!
