I tried this recipe on a whim a few years ago, not completely convinced my husband would like it. He isn’t a big fan of curry powder. But he loves this, helped in no small part, I suspect, by the peanut garnish.
I am always finding recipes on Pinterest that I want to try. It isn’t as if I forget I have 500 cookbooks. But having all those recipes at my fingertips, scrolling through mostly excellent food photos without leaving the sofa, is so addict… er…convenient. And I love curries, so this one caught my eye.
I came up with this once when my husband was at work, which meant I could spice it up as much as I liked with commercially prepared Thai red chili paste. He has acclimated to mild heat over the years, and I now have a little less tolerance. Marriage thrives on compromise, right?
This is a really nice, light soup for spring. I had printed this recipe from www.epicurious.com a while ago and finally decided to try it after finding a pound of sea scallops in the freezer.
