This Seafood curry is definitely a must try! Cooked with assorted seafood like squid, shrimps, and fish fillet. You can even add more seafood variety like scallops and clams. For this recipe I used Filipino style curry but you can also use Thai curry paste or any other curry paste available to your area. Happy cooking!
