This tuna green curry uses my own homemade green curry paste.
Dave and I have been very busy after work each night doing the wiring for the house we are building. It has been quite a task as the electrician we paid to do the work did a really bad job. We have had to cut into the concrete slab in the kitchen to sort out a problem and Dave eventually bought a nylon fish line to get around the corners where the electrician had made tight turns. The electrician has also made one of our plug points a light switch and the light switch the plug point. Thankfully Dave was able to swap them around behind the fireplace. We are missing a light switch in the kitchen even though it is on the electrical plans he worked off. The hardest job so far has been getting the wires down to the braai. This was the first bit of wiring Dave wanted to do as we need to get the wiring done for the swimming pool. Once the wiring for the swimming pool is complete we can get the garden leveled off and I can start planting. So, each night Dave has come home and we have worked, which has meant supper has to be an easy affair and not take too long to cook. This is one dish that takes no time at all and moreover, it was really tasty. Add more green curry paste if you like things hot, this curry was very mild.

Some people are so incompetent (electrician), good luck with the wiring
The dish looks delicious 🙂
thanks! I am getting used to doing the work ourselves rather than deal with incompetence 🙂
Builders are the worst – and all the other counterparts like electricians that go with it. I have yet to hear or have a good experience. I bet you cannot wait to get settled now. 😀
What an awesome curry.
our builder is better than most, but he is still a builder! We are a long way off from being settled sadly, but it is fun in the meantime 🙂
Oh wow that electrician sounds terrible! I would think anyone with access to the internet could do a better job. Sorry to hear about the trouble you’ve been having.
thanks Lorraine! Thankfully I have a very clever husband 🙂
Sounds lovely and those veggies in there..yum! Wish I could send Big Man over to sort out your problems..he usually deal with pylons, but he knows his stuff! What a pain to have had the job done so incompetently even after working off plans and now having to put it all right yourselves.
you could come with and cook! I am grateful Dave is clever with his hands or else we would be stuck 🙂
Oh dear, that electrician doesn’t sound to be a very bright spark at all. ;( You and Dave have really had your work cut out for you. Love the sound of this tuna dish. Yum! xxx
LOL! Good pun AD 🙂 We still have to do the lighting in our bedroom – that will be worth an entire post 🙂
Looks like a nice light meal!
thanks Greg, perfect for summer 🙂
I do not know what is worse, electricians or roofers? I hope you get this sorted soon. Thanks for super easy yummy curry recipe. Take care, BAM
You should hear the story of the first roof we put on – it would make you cry! Have a great day BAM 🙂
Good luck with the rest of your build!!! Lovely recipe as well 🙂
Thanks Jen 🙂
Oh gosh I know remember what it’s like dealing with builders – good, bad and indifferent! But what a tasty meal to come home to.
Looking forwar dto seeing/reading about the planting too !!
I will share the planting challenge as it comes along 🙂
Thank goodness that you and your husband can remedy the problem. Your curry sounds like it was a comforting meal after your hectic days.
it was very comforting indeed Karen, and I am also grateful Dave is so handy 🙂
Mmmmm…. that does sound good. Bummer about the poor electrical job. I hope it’s all sorted out soon.
Thanks RumpyDog, my hubby has sorted all except one room out 🙂
I really hope you have good luck with the build. I just dislike when people can’t do the job. This dish looks really good
I can also not stand it when people don’t do something properly, or finish what they have started. But with the building project, I have learnt that is more the norm 🙂
It is never easy to deal with builders, hope everything goes well for you, I just love fish curries, I’ve never make with tuna, this is a recipe to try:)
Builders are the bane of my life 🙂
