Low-carb Thai Prawn Curry with Cherry Tomatoes

Fragrant, spicy, creamy… this prawn curry was made using Thai yellow curry paste and coconut milk. I struggle to find Thai yellow curry paste in the stores here in the UK, so I buy it online. It’s authentic, delicious and affordable. I quickly cooked the prawns before starting the curry (and then added them back in to warm through before serving) because if you simply add the raw prawns directly into the hot curry to cook, you may end up with a bit of an unsightly grey soup and delay the sauce reducing (I learnt this from experience). The sauce is reduced until thick and creamy and then simply poured over konjac pasta. The plump prawns, sweet cherry tomatoes, salty fish sauce, spicy chilies, acidic lime and the fragrant coriander create perfect harmony. I also added a teaspoon of sweetener to finish it off with a little much-needed sweetness. Simply put – you need to eat this!

Instructions
  1. Remove the konjac pasta from the packaging and rinse very well under cold, running water. Do not be alarmed by the strange smell – just keep rinsing. Place the pasta into a large pan of hot water and simmer on low while you make the curry.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a wok and flash-fry the prawns until they have cooked through. Remove the prawns from the wok with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  3. Add the yellow curry paste to the same pan and cook for several seconds over moderately high heat, then whisk in all the coconut milk. (Use a silicon whisk to prevent scratching the wok.) Once combined, switch to a silicon spatula and stir regularly until the mixture reduces to a creamy sauce.
  4. Stir in the fish sauce, then return the prawns to the mixture, along with the halved tomatoes and sweetener. Cook on low for a minute or two to warm the prawns through and partially soften the tomatoes. The mixture will have further reduced – enough to coat the prawns. Generously squeeze over fresh lime juice.
  5. Drain the pasta and divide between four warm bowls. Pour over the thick, creamy mixture and garnish with sliced red chilies and coriander leaves. Heaven.
