Japanese Seafood Curry

Japanese curry is very easy and tasty dish to prepare. Curry is eaten all year round and popular for all ages in Japan. Spiciness of curry roux usually available  in 3 range; mild sweet (for child), middle hot and hot taste. I usually choose middle spicy one. There are many curry roux mixes blend like Java curry, Vermont curry, Kokumaro curry and so on. In summer adding additional summer vegetables are a way to enjoy healthy curry. Today I am making a seafood curry which is light and delicious. Using fresh seafood really makes the taste better than using frozen one.
