Prawn (Shrimp) Curry:

This Shrimp curry is a favorite
If you "Like it spicy" - Serrano chilies are delicious but be forewarned; these small, skinny, pointy chiles are about five times hotter than jalapenos.

This recipe is easy on the heat but rich in flavor, so if you prefer more spice just (carefully) increase to Serrano peppers used.

If HOT is NOT... your thing,
remember to substitute a mild red chili pepper for all or some of the Serrano chiles. You'll achieve this great flavor but without the added heat.
