The term “curry” is used to describe a dish seasoned with curry powder or paste (a blend of distinctive spices like cayenne, coriander and turmeric). But there are countless variations of this meal across South and Southeast Asia. In Thailand, curry is typically made with fresh herbs. Here, we’re serving up a Thai-inspired coconut fish curry topped with Thai basil, an incredible, purple-green variety with a cooling, anise-like flavor.
