A skilled Thai cook will concoct a sensational curry paste by accumulating a long list of aromatic vegetables, herbs and roasted whole spices, then grind them all together by hand with a mortar and pestle. I am not a Thai cook. I get my curry paste from a can, and it's delicious.
Some curry pastes might include seafood ingredients, but this has not been the case with any that I've looked at so far.
