Green Curry With Seafood And Eggplant @ Sukho Thai
Thai green curry is the most interesting of the many colors and varieties of those saucy dishes. (Which, I hasten to point out, do not taste like Indian curry.) This seafood version is as fine an interpretation of that as I’ve encountered. It includes big, meaty shrimp, scallops, mussels, and grilled fish, along with pink-purple eggplants, zucchini, and fresh basil. The grilled fish is a different touch–I can’t remember running into that before–and especially if you get it with the high pepper levels that go so well with green curry, it’s a plate of food that’s not easy to forget.
