One Sunday afternoon, I got a hankering for Seafood Stew. So instead of looking for recipes on the web, I thought I'd just use my Seafood Curry Spice mix since it had a good mild-medium flavor with a delicious broth of unflavored coconut milk. OMG!! I did not realize how delicious it would be. When I asked my husband to taste it, I didn't hear anything for a minute. "I thought, could I be so wrong about the yummy taste? , a surprised voice saying, "This is good". I burst out laughing and asked him "Why are you surprised?" He didn't realize it would be as delicious as it was. I liked medium spicy for those of you who prefer a milder spicy heat, I would suggest that you eliminate the jalapeño. I hope you enjoy this delicious recipe.
