Thai curry pastes, especially the red and green ones, get a workout in my kitchen. This shrimp coconut curry noodle soup
, from Amee's Savory Dish, uses yellow curry paste, which you can find in any good Asian market, or do what Amee did and buy some from your favorite Thai restaurant. I love shrimp and noodle soups, especially with the chewy udon noodles in this recipe. If you have scallops or mussels instead of shrimp, go ahead and substitute -- or use a mixture of shellfish. And if you don't have udon noodles, try linguine. The curry and coconut base is so good you'll want to drink it with a straw.
