    Sue Lau's Note:

    Kaffir and Galanga can be found in Asian grocers. Kaffir, which has a similar taste to lime, gives a heavenly flavor that is definitely Thai. The galanga is very similar to ginger, and also adds a Thai touch. Monkfish is said to be the poor man's lobster; it has a texture similar to it, but I can guarantee lobster will be the last thing on your mind when you taste this delectable curry.

      This is a delectable dish that definitely gets two thumbs up for taste! Imagine a creamy curry sauce, full of flavour but not too spicy and very colourful! The only thing I'd do different next time is cut the amount of broth by up to half to make a thicker sauce, since mine was still a bit too thin even after adding all that cornstarch.

      Agreed, everything that previous reviewers have said is true, this dish is phenomenal. I found all of the items I needed at the Puget Sound's Japanese grocery institution (Uwujimaya), but the kafir leaves were outrageously expensive but did add something that I think was important to the flavor profile so I wouldn't recommend ditching them. I used ripe Fresno peppers because I knew the Thai peppers would be too hot for some. It worked perfectly and those who wanted more heat could use some Rooster sauce (sriracha). It's a really phenomenal dish. I used Dover sole filets which was probably not substantial enough as much of it broke into little pieces even though it was added near the end to cook very lightly. Maybe thicker chunks of a white fish would work better next time.
