    Crab penang anyone

    Had never tried this one before. Pretty simple and straight forward.

    Ingredients:
    cooked and picked crab (blue runners)
    carton of coconut milk
    some penang paste
    sugar
    bi mak guud (sp?)
    touch of corn starch




    bi mak gruud



    picked crab meat



    reduce coconut milk



    add penang paste... (see note at end re. paste)

    mix paste into coconut milk thoroughly



    add crab meat



    add a tablespoon or so of sugar... to taste



    add a touch of corn starch



    stir well, while simmering cut bi mak guud



    Chop bi mak gruud coarsly.



    stir well and simmer about a minute.



    Plate along with some curried Sea Bass (below)



    Serve with steamed rice...



    Yummy.

    A note of caution, every area of the country makes the Penang curry paste differently. You really need to experiment to decide on amount used.

    This one was a little hot, we could have used a lot less paste. Chantaburi paste is quite a bit stronger than that found in Bangers.

    Oh Dear, I have steered clear of recipes that use kaffir lime as I didn't know where to buy it or what it was in Thai, well I thought I had steered clear of it, seems that we have 3 of these tree's/ bushes in our back garden and I eat it quite regulary, suppose it could be time to learn what all the rest of the plants are out there.

    Just in case anyone misunderstood it's Kaffir Lime leaf! DD you can buy it in any supermarket or fresh market. The leaves look like lemon leaves with two sections long the center stem. The inner one is rounded the outer typical shape of citrus leaf.
    I tend to agree with CMn on the flavor, it is excellent in some dishes.; I usually leave it out of most of my curries though.

    Many years ago I bought a cd with 1 million recipes on, a lot of the recipes called for "Liquid Smoke" to be added, I assumed that these were just joke recipes, early this year I learnt that liquid smoke is just BBQ sauce
