    Thai prawn curry
    • #4
    • 26th Jan 06, 8:52 PM
    Hi
    Tonight I made a really good thai curry with BOGOF cooked tiger prawns.
    I fried a chopped onion, sliced mushrooms & a couple of cloves of garlic. When soft I added a tin of coconut milk, some frozen peas & half a jar of green thai curry paste & let it simmer for about 5 mins. I added the prawns & heated them through thoroughly. We had it with rice & wraps, it was delicious & tasted a lot more expensive & complicated than it was.

    paranoid prawns

    Store-cupboard challenge style I'm cooking something up with some frozen prawns I found in the freezer......

    basically I also had some creamed coconut so I'm making a kind of stew with this plus: onions, peppers, lime juice, coriander, tinned tomatoes, hot pepper sauce... and am about to eat it with some steamed rice...yum!!

    Anyway - I seem to have rather a lot for just one (home alone for the next few days) and I'm a bit ignorant about re-freezing things. Basically I was veggie for about 15 years until about 2 years ago when I started eating fish and seafood.

    Can I freeze left-overs from today?? If not could I keep in the fridge and re-heat tomorrow?? Or is this a recipe for food poisoning???! :confused:

    If you are using prawns from the freezer and aren't sure, why don't you cook a batch of the sauce, then add the prawns to a portion of the sauce. The remaining sauce can be frozen and the used at a later date with the rest of the prawns??

    General rule for freezing is that if the food has been frozen raw, then defrosted and cooked, it CAN be refrozen. But in the case of frozen prawns, most of them are brought in frozen and raw to the manufacturing plants, shelled, cooked and then quick frozen for packaging. So I myself would be wary of freezing prawns again, even though I'd cooked them first.

    Yes, they look like the kind that were already cooked and then frozen.
    Unfortunately it's all been on the stove for a while now and nearly ready to eat! Otherwise that's a really good idea to do the sauce and prawns separately.
    Thanks!!

    It will keep in the fridge quite happily for 24 hours once cooled, but I wouldn't keep prawns any longer than that.

    At least next time you'll be able to freeze it

    Prawns in spicy pasta sauce:

    Make a tomato based sauce using sauted onions, peppers, a tin of chopped toms, black pepper, a touch of chilli sauce or a finely sliced chilli, and loads of prawns. Serve with boiled pasta.

    I like prawns with egg noodles, a dash of soy sauce and onions, garlic and peppers.

    Boil it first, then leave it to get cold. It doesn't fry very well if it is still hot. You could cool it under the tap then leave it to drain though!

    Mmmm....Prawn fried rice....salivating already (no smiley for dribble?)
  • helen81

    One more thought (my mum's recipe, don't know where she got it)
    Chop an onion and fry til translucent in olive oil. Add a splash of white wine and some oregano, then add a tin of chopped tomatoes (and sometime I add a splash of water if the tomatoes don't have much juice). Simmer for approx 10-15 mins til reduced. Stir in prawns and wait til they go pink (if uncooked) or heat through (if cooked). Tip it all into an ovenproof dish, and scatter with half a pack of feta (crumbled or cubed) and maybe some parsley. Bake at approx 200C until the feta is browning up, serve with garlic bread (it's the future) and salad. Hope you have a chance to try it some time!
