Tip, tricks & alternatives
Thai Red curry can be used as an alternative to the green curry paste
Tom Tom paste works as an alternate
Meat will require more time to cook, so add the meat and then the veggies.
Seafood requires less time to cook, so add it after you add the veggies.  Over cooked seafood will turn out like rubber, so make sure you do not over cook it.  The cooking time varies based on the size of each chunk.

The soup is so easy that works really well for parties. The soup does not need much attention, so you can make this in a big crock pot and not worry about it while preparing other recipes.
