"Chu Chee is hands-down one of my favorite methods to having Thai food. It is fabulous when done right. This dish can be made with shrimp, prawns, scallops, fish, or by using a combination of the shellfish, (refer to the Note stated in the method). I have also had it prepared with strips of chicken breast, but in my opinion it's over-the-top good done with the creatures of the sea.
This Thai curry recipe comes from cooking instructor and cookbook author Kasma Loha-unchit. All of Kasma's recipes are tested at home so that you will be assured of success if you follow the directions."
Shell the shrimp/prawns and butterfly. Place in a bowl and add a teaspoon of salt and a few tablespoons of water. Mix well and set aside 15-20 minutes. Then rinse a few times with running water to wash off all the salt. Drain well.
If you are using scallops, rinse and drain well. Make a well-blended paste out of the ingredients from fresh red peppers to shrimp paste either by pounding the chopped ingredients with a large mortar and pestle, or by pureeing them in a blender or food processor. Prepare the other ingredients as indicated.
If using fresh mushrooms, heat a wok and add a tablespoon of oil. When the oil is hot, toss in the mushrooms and stir-fry over high heat until they begin to change color. Sprinkle in a little fish sauce to salt and cook until mushrooms have just softened. Remove from wok. (Note there is no need to precook canned straw mushrooms.)
Spoon a cup of coconut cream from the top of a can of coconut milk into the wok and heat over high heat. Reduce the cream for a few minutes to thicken. Stir in the chilli paste and fry until aromatic and until the oil has clearly separated from the cream. Season with fish sauce and palm sugar. Reduce until the mixture is very thick before adding the prawns and/or scallops and slivered kaffir lime leaves.
Stir-fry over high heat until shrimps/prawns/scallops are nearly cooked. Drain the pre-cooked mushrooms from their juices and toss them or the drained, canned straw mushrooms into the wok. Stir well to reheat and mix in with the chili sauce.
Transfer to a serving dish and garnish top with a few sprigs of cilantro. Serve hot with plain steamed jasmine rice.
