Food Safety

Before you start, wash all surfaces and your hands with soap and warm water, and remember to wash your hands, utensils and cutting boards after they touch raw meat or eggs. Avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients. Make sure you’re cooking to safe temperatures and chilling any leftovers within two hours.

Helpful Tip

Green curry paste is a concentrated blend of chilis, lemongrass, garlic, and lime that adds both heat and flavour to curry dishes. It can be found in bottles or packages in the Asian section of grocery stores or at Asian specialty shops.

Indonesian lime leaves come from a tree grown in Southeast Asia and Hawaii. The glossy, dark green leaves have a wonderful flora-citrus aroma and can be found dried, and occasionally fresh, in Asian markets. If Indonesian lime leaves are not available, use the rind of one lime.
