The flavors in this West African Chicken and Shrimp Stir Fry are absolutely marvelous. I have never used curry paste before, and I assure you I will be using it again. This is such a simple recipe that is packed with flavor. tossed with rice, a big bowl of this terrific chicken and shrimp is perfect comfort food on these chilly days.

I simply adore West African cuisine ! It is SO FLAVORSOME! They are not at all afraid of spices and consistenly serve up The Tastiest and most unpretentious meals that always leave my tastebuds begging for more. So we added some chopped fresh garlic and chili to the recipe but that was the only change. The rest of the flavors are authentic and wonderful and I would strongly recommend you give it a try because it really is DEEEEELICIOUS!
