The late Northwest harvest season brings us gorgeous local chiles, green beans, stunning basil and a rainbow of sweet peppers. All of those star in this aromatic and beautiful dish. You’ll be amazed at the complexity of flavors created by the combination of these relatively simple ingredients.

Ingredients

Preparation

Blanch green beans in boiling, salted water for about 4 minutes. Refresh in cold water and drain.

Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a wok or sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add onions, beans and red bell pepper and stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes, or until onions are crisp-tender. Add prawns and stir-fry for 2 minutes more or until they turn lightly pink. Make a well in the center, add remaining oil and stir in the curry paste. Cook for 1 minute or so to bloom the flavors. Stir in coconut milk, spinach, basil and cilantro. Season generously with fish sauce and lime juice, and gently heat through.
