Red Thai Seafood Curry

seafood curry Curry dishes are one of my favorite and most frequently cooked meals.  The spices are some of my favorites and the versatility makes the dish so easy for a healthy go-to.  I often times throw in hearty vegetables like sweet potato, cauliflower, potato, and beans like chickpea.  Now that the weather is warming up I opt for lighter versions with seafood and keep the base more broth like.  You can easily make this more hearty by plating over a bed of rice, but I enjoy it lighter.  Seafood is a great source of protein.  It is also rich in vitamins and minerals and Omega 3’s which is great for the brain and body.
