Chu Chee Goong is one of my favorite Thai foods. Perfectly seared fresh Tiger Prawns in combination with a rich and creamy Thai Red Curry Coconut sauce and a sprinkle of fragrant Kaffir lime leaves represent perfection. Watch my recipe video and make it yourself today!


The English spelling of this dish is not standardized as is the case with most other Thai dishes – it is also spelled Choo Chee, Cho Chee, or Chu Chi Koong.
