In the realm of curries, it is hard to pick my favorite. There are so many different flavors that one could highlight through fresh herbs and spices. One of my go-to sauces in the past year has been this green curry sauce. It’s a loose riff on Thai green curry. Traditionally, green curry that comes from central Thailand is made with shrimp paste, kaffir limes, and green thai chilies (specifically prik kee noo suan).
My green bean curry variation leaves out the shrimp paste and uses readily available ingredients like regular limes and jalapeño peppers. If you can find the more traditional ingredients, I recommend making your own green curry paste (this is a shrimp version and this is one without). However, you can often find green curry paste at the store (the flavor just isn’t as strong/good as homemade!) Read more and see the recipe.
