I love cooking with South East Asian spices and I fancied making some little canape style dishes to enjoy at home with my lovely wife. Laksa is a curried soup, originating from Malaysia and Singapore and there are many different variations of this traditionally street food style dish. The most popular are the curried coconut soup with noodles and also a tamarind based broth. Both are usually with seafood.

I have played around with the laksa spices and incorperated them into some delicious canape style dishes with scallops and king prawns. They were really delicious and the flavour from the laksa spices really brought out the best of the seafood that I used.
