Vindaloo and Curry Coconut Seafood Stew

I made this pan full of deliciousness a few weeks ago and decided to share the recipe with you all. It was one of my favorite dishes EVER!!!!! After all, it has one of my favorite spices (curry), favorite food (shellfish) and some delicious coconut milk. I happened to have some leftover hominy in the fridge and a bunch of fresh veggies that I was dying to use. Here's a great recipe that you can tweak as needed but this base is amazing and allows you to add other variety of veggies.

4 sections of small blue crabs
1/2 lb of Large Shrimp (I used head on but you can go for the headless ones)
2 Small Potatoes (diced and microwaved for 2 minutes)
1/2 Cup of Hominy
1/2 Cup Bell Peppers
1/2 Small Onion
Handful of Sugar Snap Peas
1/2 Can of Coconut Milk
1 Tbsp of Vindaloo Seasoning
1 Tsp of Curry Powder
1 1/2 Tsp of Chipotle Pepper
Salt to taste
Chilli Peppers to garnish
Boil shrimp, crab and potatoes in a deep pan until they are fully cooked, about 6-8 minutes. Drain and leave about 1/2 cup of water in the pan, then add the curry and vindaloo seasoning, coconut milk, sugar snap peas, hominy, onion and bell pepper and let simmer for 10 minutes. You'll need to stir at least twice to ensure the flavors are evenly distributed. Finish off with chipotle pepper and salt to taste. Remove from heat and serve with your favorite bread or roti.  I had this this treat with some flour roti, what will you have with yours? Do not forget to add your pepper garnish. 
Enjoy! BNW~
