Chef Sammy
A few months ago we went to this Indian restaurant in New York City and we had coconut curry with shrimp but I felt like it should have a little more spice, so I came home and recreated this recipe with the additional spices I wanted to taste in it. I am so excited to present to you with Lobster Coconut Curry. I am so sure you'll enjoy this just as much as I do.
