Yes please!!

Here’s a meal that Hub and I are rather addicted to at the moment – Prawn and Coconut Laksa.  It has all the right ‘ingredients’:

  • quick
  • healthy
  • easy
  • very tasy

What’s not to like?

I took this photo of all the actual ingredients tonight before getting stuck in. But so eager was I to get on with it, that I left out two key things: garlic and coconut oil.


They are included in this photo showing everything chopped up and ready to go.


Apart from obviously doubling up the recipe for two people, I have made a couple of other variations, as one does:

  • I include a leek for extra bulk, flavour and general oomph.  Not authentic, I am sure, but it works;
  • I don’t add as much stock as stated in the recipe because it makes things too liquid – we find it nicer to have a slightly thicker sauce;
  • I use two red chillies, but that’s just our taste.  The coconut milk makes sure that all the flavours combine together in a beautifully mellow way;
  • I use cooked prawns for speed.

Apart from that, I follow the recipe to the letter!!

This is not the prettiest dish to photograph, but I can assure you it smells and tastes delicious. Why not give it a try? 😀
