Thai Curry With Catfish And Crab Recipe

We got our hands on one of the best fish cookbooks we've encountered in recent memory, authored by two of Sweden's best-known chefs. What you'd never be able to tell from the cover is how rock-crazy these guys are — their "pairings" encourage you to listen to the White Stripes, Kiss, Smashing Pumpkins and the Beatles (among others) while you prepare a spectacular fish dish, like this Thai curry with catfish and crab.

Okay, we might as well say it: Thai curry should be hot. You can then debate whether it should be hot as hell or just make you a bit thirsty. It's trial and error to be honest, but remember — you can always add heat afterwards, the other way around is a bit trickier.
