How to Make Shrimp And Mussel Curry With Pineapple
Heat a large skillet with a lid over medium heat, and add one and a quarter cups of coconut milk. Bring to a boil. Stir in two tablespoons of red curry paste and cook for about a minute or until an aroma emanates from the mixture.
Pour the remaining one-and-a-quarter cups of coconut milk and two tablespoons of fish sauce into the skillet, and bring to a boil again.
Add the cleaned raw shrimp and mussels. Then add in the pineapple, lime leaves, and cover. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until the shrimp are cooked through and the mussel's shells are opening up.
Discard any unopened mussels, and serve by garnishing with half a handful of chopped cilantro and two seeded and chopped red chilies. Add a sprinkle of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, and adjust the taste according to personal preference.
