- Tips: Using *Thai red curry paste is an easy way to add tons of flavor and some heat to your cooking. It is available in Asian food sections of most supermarkets: it is known as gaeng pet. Also, I found several recipes to make this paste from scratch, but haven't tried it yet because the "THAI KITCHEN" brans is somewhat expensive, but SO easy!!
- **Kaffir lime leaves, which come from kaffir lime trees in Southeast Asia and Hawaii, & have a floral-citrus aroma, The leaves are sold frozen and are sometimes available fresh at Southeast Asian markets. I used finely grated regular lime zest and it was just fine.
- ***I used Trader Joes frozen shrimp and they worked just fine! No cleaning/deveining, just had to halve!
