♦ Chef Ann’s Notes:

This Scallops and Shrimp Thai Curry dish, is a tad bit pretentious in its level of heat. The use of sweet coconut milk will help to balance this luscious dish. However, for those of you that can’t take the heat simply omit the crushed red chile peppers and perhaps one of the Thai chiles. This will truly tone things down for you! I was able to achieve the great Thai flavor of this dish without using curry paste.

Preparation before cooking
  1. In a medium bowl add 2 tablespoons of yellow curry powder and 1 tablespoon of tumeric, 1 tablespoon of red chile powder, mix with a fork and add scallops. Make sure that scallops are well coated with seasoning.
  2. Cover and Place in refrigerator.
  3. In a medium bowl add 2 tablespoon of chile powder, smoked paprika, crushed chile peppers, 2 tablespoon of yellow curry powder. Mix with a fork and add shrimp.
  4. Cover and place in refrigerator.
  5. Chop zucchini in half and slice each half in thin slices at an angle/slant, and set aside.
Preparation while cooking
  • Tune in to your favorite music channel
  • Sing out loud while you put your whole heart into the making of this Thai Curry dish.

  • Remove scallops from skillet and place in a small dish
  • Add shrimp to the same skillet and stir mixture around in the skillet for 2 minutes
  • Pour in coconut milk and stir ingredients for about 1 minute, add Thai chile peppers (whole)and diced scallion
