Coconut milk, fresh ginger, fish sauce, and Thai green curry paste (which is a blend of green chilies, ginger (or galangal), onion, garlic, and green bell pepper, lemon juice, and lime zest) are staples in Thai cuisine. The light coconut milk adds sweetness and creaminess (with little fat), and the ginger and curry paste add savory spice and fire. Look for coconut milk and red curry paste in the ethnic section of your supermarket. The balance of honey, scallion, basil, and lime, plus the natural aromas created by cooking your fresh peppers zucchini creates a lovely medley on your plate.
