This wild turkey red curry recipe is made with Asian red curry paste. You see, I’ve got a thing about Indian curry powder. I can only take it in small doses or the flavor just overwhelms the dish. If you disagree, that’s OK. It’s America and you don’t have to like, or dislike, what I do.

Asian curries are a whole different thing. I like them all, especially Asian red curry. Combined with coconut milk for a creamy sauce, this wild turkey red curry is a great way to serve wild turkey without burying the natural flavor of the meat.
