Elegant Saffron Shrimp Curry with Coconut Our New Comfort Food
When you think of Provencal food it’s true that curry dishes are not what rush to mind. However, the population base and contemporary tastes are changing with the times. Recently, Ashley Tinker of Curious Provence shared her source for “exotic” spices in Marseille (here).
We decided to make shrimp curry with saffron and coconut for Easter, straying far from more traditional, and a bit boring, lamb dishes. Many of the ingredients (turmeric, cumin seed mustard seeds) are easily found in most grocery stores in Provence. Make certain to buy your saffron from a reputable source. Although still an expensive spice, saffron is grown and harvested in the region.
