I really enjoy the flavors of Southeast Asia.  There is so much variety in Asian cooking that one needs to explore these unique flavors to find which flavors you like.  The inspiration for this Singapore Seafood Curry Soup, otherwise known as LAKSA, is my love for all things curry and seeing this soup in restaurants and on TV.  Whenever, I see something on a menu that I like, I want to explore what it is, and eventually, I want to try and make it.

Singapore Seafood Curry Soup

Laksa soup originates from Indonesia.  Since I used a Singapore spice blend, I had to adapt the name.  I kept the overall recipe intact save for this one spice.  One idea that can make trying new, or more exotic recipes, easy is a trip to a spice store.  In this recipe, I used a Singapore spice blend I picked up at Penzeys.  They have on line ordering as well.  Buying a spice blend can make it easier for you to try newer recipes.

I would not say this recipe is hard to make but it certainly has quite a number of ingredients.  Like most of the recipes I make too, I tend to expand the ingredient list too with spices or sauces I enjoy.  This Singapore Seafood Curry Soup gets it subtle flavor from the ginger and the lemongrass.  It gets its bolder flavor from the SAMBAL, a Korean chili sauce, serrano chilies and from a red chili paste.  The dish also has so many great textures from the cod, broccoli and the peppers.
