We were given some Barbushco australian native spices as a present. They include Lemon Myrtle, Wattleseed, Aniseed Myrtle, Dorrigo Pepper and Rainforest Blend (Lemon Myrtle, Cinnamon Myrtle, Chilli). They are also certified organic. I have to confess I have had them a while, but, I have now made a decision that I should try a recipe once a week.

So this seafood curry recipe came with the spices. The recipe calls for green curry paste, I used my paste that I had in the freezer from my thai green curry recipe. Another confession is that my husband actually cooked this as I am feeling sick with a cold (and have had very little sleep due to my bub also having the cold). After tasting the curry he decided it needed a bit of zing so added some fish sauce, tamarind, brown sugar and lime juice (not in the original recipe).
It was really delicious. None of the spices dominated but overall it was different in its flavour. The fish, prawns and squid all tasted fantastic. The colour of the curry was not all that appealing. I am looking forward to trying more recipes.
